Rewards and Wellness

GF is committed to offering high-quality benefit options that are affordable, competitive and comprehensive for employees and their families across the globe.*

We are focused on developing and enhancing programs that encompass the whole person, helping them better manage their work and family. Many of these programs focus on “moments that matter” in an employee’s career journey and include benefits such as:

    • Comprehensive healthcare and life insurance options

    • Financial benefits such as retirement savings plans and in some countries pension plans

    • Time off programs including vacation and paid holidays

    • Leave of absence programs including competitive parental leave

    • Family care support programs

    • Career development programs including tuition reimbursement and student loan repayment (Student loan repayment only available in the US)

    • Global mobility opportunities including short/long term assignments and relocation

    • Professional and career skills development

    • Additional location-specific benefits

*All full-time and part-time employees are offered equal benefits in their regions with some differences in time-off allocations, based on working hours in certain regions. Employees who are temporary are not eligible for benefits except where required under country-specific labor laws. Benefits vary by country based on local and market conditions. 

Health and Wellbeing 

We offer a wide range of health benefits and insurance programs to support our employees and their families.  

Our wellness programs are designed to support the essential well-being of our workforce, promoting a healthy balance between work and personal life. In 2023 we launched a global employee wellbeing initiative (wellness@gf) to promote wellness across GF workplace. Our dedicated Wellness Partners include Virgin Pulse, RethinkCare, and our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to support our global members and their families. These programs offer comprehensive support for a variety of personal and professional needs, ensuring our employees have access to the care they need.


GF Flex – Where Life Meets Work 

When life events occur, either big or small, we want to make sure our employees feel fully supported. By identifying and implementing flexible solutions to better support employee work-life integration and wellbeing, our employees can contribute their value in the way that works for the business, themselves, and their teams. Approximately 25 percent of the GF workforce participates in some type of flexible work arrangement, which may include fully remote, partial remote, part-time or flexible work hours.* One of the many benefits of GF Flex is that for most arrangements, employees can flex their work while maintaining the comprehensive benefits available to them. 

*Where applicable based on local labor regulations and business needs. 


Maternity and Family Support 

As a commitment to support employees in all aspects of life, GF offers a competitive global paid parental leave program, inclusive of providing a minimum of 20 weeks paid maternity leave. This program globally meets all local and country-based parental leave requirements as well as providing time off for regions without a leave law requirement. Our parental leave programs are open to 100 percent of our regular employees across the globe. When employees are ready to return to work, they can participate in our GF Flex program which can help ease the stress of returning to work and further support their work-life balance and wellbeing. In the U.S., following birth, our partnership with Care.com can help employees with access to childcare that meets their needs as well as a $1,000 employer contribution to their Dependent Care FSA.  


Compensation 

Our Total Rewards Philosophy reflects our commitment to crafting a compensation structure that recognizes the essential contributions of our employees, with a mix of pay and benefits designed to meet their diverse needs. We provide robust compensation programs, which consist of base salary and variable pay programs across all levels of the organization, and for eligible employees, we also offer stock-based compensation. 


Development 

Career growth is essential to our employees’ journey, and we provide ample opportunities for professional development, shaping their path to success. We offer tuition assistance and loan repayment programs* to eligible employees pursuing education that supports current and future objectives of the company. Additionally, expert student loan coaching will help you pay down your student loan debt. 

*Loan repayment only available in the US.
