  • Flexible time off (FTO) policy. We recognize that time off to rest and recharge is important. The Flexible Time Off Policy (FTO) is designed for our employees to do just that -- balance work and life while maintaining well-being.
  • Flexible work policy. Gone are the days of being in an office from 9-5, Monday through Friday. We recognize there are better ways to measure productivity than counting the number of hours you’re in the office and that sometimes the office isn’t the best place to be productive.
