Social Responsibility

We are committed to our employees and the communities we live, work and invest in. That’s why we support the comprehensive well-being of our staff members – financially, physically, mentally and professionally – and empower them to make a positive social impact.

Employee Well-Being

Our people are our most valuable assets, so we prioritize their comprehensive well-being. This support means offering a variety of programs aimed at bettering the lives of our staff.

Our benefits include competitive base pay, performance-based restricted stock awards and a 401(k) with a robust company match. We support our employees’ physical and mental health through paid parental leave, industry-leading health care benefits, unlimited sick leave, flexible paid time off and employee assistance programs. In addition, we offer yearly wellness reimbursements, an on-site fitness center and fully stocked kitchens.

We provide opportunities for our associates to learn and thrive as professionals, including educational reimbursement, mentorship, executive coaching and ongoing professional development. For more information, visit our Careers page.

Impacting the Community

Giving back is one of our core values. We demonstrate this through the Company’s charitable giving program, EPR Impact, a key cornerstone of our social responsibility. Through a number of employees actively engaged in nonprofits and the company’s commitment to donating to and sponsoring charitable causes and events, we are fortunate to partner with amazing organizations both locally and nationally.

As a benefit to employees, EPR Impact’s annual budget includes a pool of funds to support employee-directed contributions to nonprofit organizations where an employee is personally involved. Additionally, EPR will match employee contributions annually up to a given amount for contributions from their personal funds to nonprofit organizations that meet the criteria of the program.

We also offer paid volunteer time, giving employees the chance to volunteer together during work hours and on dedicated Days of Service.

ALS Association

“The support that EPR has given for more than 10 years has been amazing not only monetarily but also in showcasing to our families that they aren’t fighting this battle alone. EPR has greatly impacted the chapters ability to provide items such as Quality of Life grants given to assist families with the challenges they face every day, and Equipment Loan closet support which covers costs not covered by insurance.” Learn more.

We do not tolerate discrimination, corruption or harassment and value human rights, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, citizenship, marital status, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, veteran status or other characteristics protected by law.

Safety and Security

We believe that a safe and secure work environment is critical to the success of our business. By encouraging employee input and ongoing education about safety and security issues, we seek to protect those in our corporate office while holding vendors and consultants accountable to our standards.

Our policies and procedures embrace best practices for cybersecurity. Third-party vendors complement our processes by conducting independent cybersecurity testing and suggesting future enhancements.
