Managing Work and Life
Maintaining work-life balance – as well as productivity – means having some time away from work. We offer employees a number of leave options to manage their life, including vacation leave, sick leave, bereavement leave, maternity leave, paternity leave, adoption leave and parental leave. We also recognize eight public holidays, as well as a winter break in the period between December 24 and January 1.
Looking Toward Retirement
Long-term financial well-being is important. Planning for retirement takes time and attention to a myriad of details through the years. Employees are eligible to participate in a defined contribution plan with employee contributions and company contributions. The Department of Work and Pensions manages the following benefits: old age pension, incapacity pension, disability pension, reversible and indirect pension for surviving dependents, and old age supplementary pension.
Health and Welfare
A key component of overall well-being is your physical health. Boeing provides comprehensive health care programs to help ensure that employees and their families are getting the care needed to maintain or improve health, including medical, disability, life insurance, business travel medical insurance, a wellness website, health screenings, seasonal flu shots and annual eye testing.
Boeing provides services that can support physical and emotional well-being, help its employees make sound, proactive decisions about health and well-being, be more productive at work and at home, and enjoy life more in general.
Online Health Portal
Boeing provides employees access to an online health portal designed to provide tools, resources and lifestyle improvement programs to manage and enhance their health and well-being.
International Employee Assistance Program
Almost everyone, at some point, could use the support of a professional who is trained to help with life's difficulties. Boeing employees and their dependents have confidential access to that kind of service at no cost to them through the International Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The program is prepared to assist employees and their dependents with any personal problems requiring help, including couples, parenting, family relationships and work-related issues; depression or anxiety; cultural transition and relocation adjustment issues; drug or alcohol abuse; and other mental health concerns.
Online Health Assessment
Offered each year, the online Health Assessment helps identify ways employees can improve their health and well-being.
Boeing on the Move
The Boeing on the Move physical activity challenge is an annual six-week program designed to get employees physically active and make movement a lifestyle habit.
Quit for Life Tobacco Cessation Program
Boeing's free and confidential tobacco cessation program, Quit For Life®, features telephone sessions with professional Quit Coaches®, web program integration, free nicotine replacement therapy products, and help through "Weight Calls" to help employees manage their weight while quitting.
