Because our employees are the key to our success, we offer a wide range of competitive benefits and perks to support their overall well-being.

Physical Well-Being

Medical, Dental and Vision Care Plans

Our medical plan benefits include a PPO option, a HDHP option, and an HMO option. Coverage for prescription drugs also is included. Our dental coverage is a PPO plan offering network and non-network alternatives. Our vision care plan pays for examinations, lenses, and frames.

Life, ADD

You will be eligible to receive two times your pay in company-provided life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment insurance. In addition, you may purchase supplemental life insurance up to five times of your salary. Dependent life insurance is also available.

Short-Term Disability

We provide a generous Salary Continuance Program if you cannot work due to an illness or disability which qualifies for Short-Term Disability or Workers’ Compensation. The plan pays 100% of your salary for the first 30 days and then 66-2/3% for the remaining 180 days.

Employee Assistance Program

All employees eligible for medical coverage and their eligible dependents are covered by NEC’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The EAP can provide help for stress, anxiety, depression, or conflict, and is designed to help individuals through issues before they escalate into bigger problems.

After one year of service, you qualify to receive an additional company contribution equal to 2% of your salary.
