Benefits & Rewards
What makes Devereux’s benefit program unique? We’re not a one-size-fits-all employer. We offer multiple plan choices, so each employee can customize the plan that best fits his/her needs. As a Devereux employee, you can be confident your needs will be met, and your hard work recognized and rewarded.
Devereux is proud to offer equal benefits to employees with same-sex or opposite-sex domestic partners, and their children. We work hard to create inclusive workplace environments, and retain the talented employees who make our organization a great place to work. In doing so, we believe we will continue to attract high quality people to our organization. It is also another way for us to show all our employees how much we value and respect them.
