"We work diligently to make saving for retirement easy for all employees. We believe that a strong benefits program contributes to workforce security and higher performing workers," — Scott Klenk, Senior Vice President, Human Capital Management

About the company

Established in 1984, CDPHP is a physician-founded, member-focused and community-based not-for-profit health plan that offers high-quality affordable health insurance plans to members in 24 counties throughout New York.

  • For the employee retirement plan, the company implemented automatic enrollment for new employees and automatically re-enrolled those contributing less than 2%. This combined with annual automatic escalation and a generous employer match helped increase the retirement plan participation rate from 86.94% to 96.75%.
  • Employee perks include telecommuting, flex time, concierge services, on-site fitness facilities and free or subsidized meals.
  • The company recently installed two walking work stations that allow employees to burn calories while getting their work done.
