Infusing principles of benefits ‘equity’ leads to even greater flexibility and access
Springfield, Mass. And Boston, Mass. – February 2, 2023 – Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) today announced another expansion of its comprehensive suite of employee benefits with additional meaningful offerings and enhancements that are adaptable to diverse situations and needs of employees, inclusive of all generations, genders and lifestyles.
“We look at our suite of benefits as an opportunity to build a culture that people want to be part of. A culture that honors its legacy while remaining progressive to meet the evolving needs of its employees,” said Sue Cicco, head of HR and Employee Experience, MassMutual. “We look for employees who thrive in a culture based on trust and accountability. Where principles replace rules. Where diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives are valued. And where there is a shared passion for greater equity and opportunity for all.”
Recent additions to MassMutual’s suite of employee benefits designed to support overall well-being include:
These changes are the latest additions to MassMutual’s progressive and pioneering benefits, designed to flex with employees’ changing needs and expanding whenever possible to their loved ones.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the company’s focus shifted to help employees successfully transition to working remotely at a time of perhaps the most dramatic blend of one’s personal and professional lives, leading to the company’s current hybrid workforce model, which balances personal flexibility with in-person teamwork. Along the way, the company has continued to enhance its mental health offerings, recently renaming what were formerly referred to as ‘occasional sick days’ to ‘take care days.’ This small yet powerful change was intended to signify the flexibility and autonomy that employees have to use their time off however they see fit. No questions asked.
“At the core of who we are is a company of people helping people in their time of need,” added Cicco. “This includes helping our employees and their loved ones, however they define them, feel cared for in all phases of their lives and enabling them to achieve their full potential.”
