    • Sick Leave Donation Program
      • Donate 8 - 80 hours of accrued sick leave time
      • Goes to employees experiencing terminal illness or catastrophic event who have exhausted their paid time off

    We also want to remind you about our ongoing self-care and mental health coverage support

    These past weeks have been difficult for our communities and our Team DPS members. Self-care is a really important step in processing and coping with stressful situations. At DPS, we have tools available to support you. We encourage you to talk with your manager or team members if you are needing help and also use the following resouces for any help whatsoever that you are needing with your mental well being.

    • Employee Assistance Program (EAP) - Our EAP is a confidential, no-cost service, available 24/7 to all DPS employees and their immediate families. Plan for life events, find resources for personal issues, or get help for managing daily life. Visit EAP on the commons for more information or call 855-327-1377. There are so many specialized options to choose from to help with any mental health need.
    • Mental and Emotional Health Services through your medical insurance carrier -  UnitedHealthcare, MotivHealth, and Kaiser Permanente all offer tailored supportive services within their networks.

    Employees that work 20 hours or more are benefits eligible. If you do not waive or enroll, you will be auto-defaulted with the MotivHealth 3000 (post-tax) medical plan, and a Health Savings Account (HSA) effective 7/1/2023. If no election is made current dental and vision benefits will end 6/30/23.

    Enroll or waive via Benefits Enrollment Site starting Monday 4/17/23.
