Understanding Paragon’s Benefits
We know and recognize our employees are the reason for our success. Our philosophy is to take care of our people and they will take care of the rest. That’s why we offer so many benefits focused on appreciating work-life balance.
Let’s start with the basics; or the benefits we believe are essential entitlements. Click on each item to expand additional information.
Does full-time mean 40 hours for clinical provider positions?
In a nutshell, no. We want our employees to feel supported and productive in a meaningful way that doesn’t contribute to burnout. We ask our full-time employees to work 28 client contact hours per week. This allows time for travel, paperwork, and supervision.
We offer competitive plans with low deductibles. We also make Flex Spending Accounts available and include supplementary Vision/Dental insurance.
Retirement plan that gives profits back to employees
Our employees have access to a retirement plan that gives profits back to employees. Available after 3 eligible months of work, our employees get 100% employer match for the first 3% contributed and 50% match for above 3$ and up to 5% contributed. All employer matching contributions are 100% vested and portable if an employee leaves. Each employee has access to a plan-sponsored financial advisor who can help with diversified investment options at major investment companies.
Paid Time Off
Full-time employees START with 3 weeks of PTO (120 hours or 15 days), plus 5 sick days and 1 float holiday upon successful completion of a 90-day period. Additional time off can be acquired through years of service.
AFLAC Disability Insurance
Paragon is partnered with AFLAC to offer a wide range of disability insurances, which are available to all employees.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
As a behavioral health agency, we want our employees to be well mentally, physically, and emotionally. We offer an EAP program for all full/part-time employees.
