With a people first mentality we take the word “benefits” seriously. Point B provides a comprehensive benefits package that gives you security, flexibility, support, and personal choice. We go beyond the basics, building our packages around what programs, plans and perks will truly and richly benefit our employees personally and professionally. Our benefits fall into three main groups: Company Ownership and Financial, Health and Wellness, and Work, Life & Choice.
COMPANY OWNERSHIP AND FINANCIAL
Point B is proudly 100% employee-owned. We offer robust financial benefits, including stock ownership, financial planning services and retirement accounts and more.
ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan): Through our ESOP, we have been proudly 100 percent employee owned since 2014. This plan allows employees to benefit through annual Point B stock allocations. It’s a long-term, wealth-building opportunity not available on the open market, and one that reflects the value and the values of the firm.
401(k): Our 401(k) plan allows you to save both pre-tax and Roth (after-tax) money for your retirement, with a diversified selection of investment funds to choose from.
Financial planning assistance: To further help associates with their financial wellness, we offer financial planning, education and guidance resources at no cost to the employee.
Flexible pay model: Our pay model reflects our commitment to flexibility and choice. We provide a base salary for our associates as they serve clients, transition between assignments and engage in professional development--even while they take vacation. Beyond the base salary, associates receive additional monthly pay for productivity for clients and firm beyond base pay expectations. This pay model enables real-time compensation for the work you do, and allows you to determine how much time off you want to take in any given year.
Generous bonus structure: We offer an annual bonus (pending individual and company performance) recognizing both the outcomes of the individual contributions you choose to make, as well as the shared benefits of a successful year.
Professional development opportunities and stipend: Point B embraces the journey of development and sponsors a number of professional development and learning experiences. We also provide an annual external training stipend to each employee for use towards development classes, professional associations, or conferences that match individual development goals.
529 Education Savings Plan Counseling: Although Point B does not contribute to your 529 plan, we do offer support in selecting a plan through Gradvisor.
HEALTH AND WELLNESS
At Point B we believe one of the most important things you can do for your total health and wellbeing is to do what you love, with people you enjoy and respect, in an environment that is collaborative and supportive no matter your stage in life. This is the firm culture we continue to cultivate daily. Point B provides a comprehensive benefits package that gives you security, flexibility, support, and personal choice.
Health Insurance Plans: Point B offers multiple medical plans along with dental and vision coverage to help meet the needs of employees and their families at every life stage.
Flexible Spending Accounts: We offer optional FSAs which allow employees to save and spend pre-tax dollars on healthcare expenses. Point B also offers an HSA (Health Savings Account) eligible health plan thereby allowing you to shelter additional taxable income for medical expenses.
Disability and life insurance Policies: Valuable long-term protection for you, peace of mind for your family.
Paid Parental Leave: Point B offers six weeks of base salary for those welcoming a child to their family. Additional time off can often be taken using our flexible time off benefit.
Health Concierge: We provide free access to a health concierge who can connect employees with healthcare and wellness services, tools and counseling tailored to their location and needs.
Employee Assistance Program: Experts provides confidential short-term counseling, referral services, and more at no cost to the employee.
WORK, LIFE & CHOICE
Choice and flexibility are a fundamental part of our culture, whether deciding how to organize your schedule, selecting the cell phone you want to use, or determining how much vacation to take. Our built-in flexibility reflects the trust we have in our associates to make wise decisions for themselves, clients, and for the firm.
Flexible schedule: Most Point B associates are free to work with their current clients and co-workers to create a schedule that works best for them and their needs. This includes opportunities for remote work in many cases. Our culture encourages work/life balance, meaning (except in rare cases of urgent client need) you’re not expected to endlessly check emails throughout evenings or weekends.
Unlimited vacation policy: Our associates are free to work with clients and co-workers to take the amount and duration of vacation that works for them. Our corporate employees receive a generous number of vacation days as well.
Flexible leave of absence options: Point B strongly supports associates in following their passions beyond work. In addition to the ability to manage your own schedule on a day to day basis, Point B’s flexible leave policy offers up to 4 months unpaid leave annually with full benefits. Although most often used for extended personal travel, the policy has also supported associates doing extended volunteer work or to lengthen family-related leave. It allows you to go big, but still return home to Point B.
Events and activities: Point B hosts dozens of events in each of our markets each year to promote our thriving and vibrant culture. One of the most highly anticipated and well-attended events is the two-night, three-day annual getaway in each market for associates and their partners.
Associate-based sponsorship program: We love to help our communities thrive. Point B sponsors associates who take an active leadership role in nonprofit or community boards, supporting the associate’s involvement while providing additional sponsorship dollars for the organization.
Choose between part- and full-time assignments: We understand that workloads may need to ebb and flow during various life chapters. We provide flexibility for associates to choose (in many cases) between part- or full-time hours as makes sense for their schedule.
