Our Commitment to You

Long ago, Heath expressed the company’s deep commitment to its employees by providing career opportunities with excellent benefits.  The company’s leadership has never wavered since then.  Today, Heath offers a combination of benefits, wellness-enhancing activities, and opportunities for career-development that no other contractor of our size can match in this region.

Health Insurance

The health insurance is a High Deductible Health Plan working in conjunction with a Health Savings Account (HSA). The company pays 100% of the insurance premiums for the employee and their dependents. The employee is responsible for the annual deductible.

Employees are encouraged to fund the amount of their annual deductible to their HSA through pre-taxed payroll deductions. Any unused funds can be used to offset future years’ medical costs or to build towards a medical retirement account with pre-tax dollars.

 

Dental & Vision Insurance

Dental and vision insurance premiums are shared expenses between the employee and the company with 80% of the premium paid by Saunders Construction, Inc.

 

Employee Assistance Program

An EAP is a solution-focused program for personal and professional issues. The EAP assists organizations in addressing productivity issues, helps employees identify and resolve personal concerns, and enables employers and employees to take a pro-active approach in managing wellness.

 

Section 125 Plan

This is an employer-sponsored benefit plan, which allows an employee to select from a list of available benefits — benefits specifically needed by the employee. This program means that current after-tax expenditures for items such as insurance premiums, dependent care costs, and some vision and dental expenses not covered by insurance, can now be paid for with pre-tax dollars. The bottom line is that employees may have increased take-home pay or more dollars available to purchase other benefits they may need.

 

Retirement

The Saunders Construction, Inc., 401(k) Plan, while one plan, currently has two funding components. The first is a nondiscretionary match of 100% of your combined elective deferral to a maximum of 2%. The second method of funding is the nondiscretionary 3% “Safe Harbor” 401(k) contribution.

 

401(K)/Safe Harbor Plan

Following a 6-month eligibility period, all newly eligible employees will be automatically enrolled in the 401(K) Retirement Plan and set up to make contributions of 6% of their base salary. Eligible employees will also receive a Safe Harbor contribution from the Company in the amount of 3% of their base salary.  The company will match 100% of your combined elective deferral to a maximum of 2%. We also offer a Roth 401(k) which allows employees to contribute funds on a post-tax elective deferral basis in addition to or instead of pre-tax elective deferrals.

 

Paid Time Off

Heath Construction offers a generous paid time off program. Employees are eligible for 15 days of vacation during the first year of employment; 19 days of vacation annually in years 2–4; 23 days annually in years 5–9 and 28 days after 10 years.

 

Holiday

Heath Construction offers seven paid holidays throughout the year.

 

Bonus Program

Contingent upon the profitability for the year and after consideration for the long-term viability of the company, a percentage of the profit may be made available to pay employees a merit bonus.

 

Life Insurance, Short Term Disability Insurance and Long Term Disability Insurance

Heath Construction provides life insurance, STD, and LTD insurance on behalf of its employees. The life insurance will provide a lump-sum payment to the employee’s designated beneficiaries. Short-term disability coverage replaces a portion of lost income for a specified period of time for employees who are ill or have non-work-related injuries. The long-term disability insurance replaces a portion of the employee’s lost income after short-term disability coverage ends.

*All benefits listed above are for non-signatory, full-time personnel.

On the job, Heath rewards dedication and success with extremely competitive compensation and opportunities for professional growth and structured construction career development.

Unlike larger contractors, where “career paths” are strictly defined and opportunities are actually quite limited, at Heath we create opportunities to help our employees meet their professional goals.

Heath is also actively engaged with leading industry resources such as AGC Colorado (www.agccolorado.org) to provide career-building opportunities for employees.  In fact, Heath employees have all the same training opportunities as their counterparts at Saunders Construction.  These include training in technical skills, leadership/management, safety and specialized topics such as surface water control and environmental protection.

At Heath, we believe in the value of reaching out to others in our community who need a helping hand.  The company sponsors many worthwhile causes in the community, and together we support them with real action.  The 50ft Nightlights Tree that our staff members help erect for Realities for Children, for example, has a profound impact on the lives of thousands of kids each year.
