Benefits and Rewards
At ARA, we offer a total compensation mix that addresses our employees’ needs now and in the future. We do this by offering competitive salaries, comprehensive health coverage and retirement benefit plans designed to protect employees and their families, as well as professional development opportunities to support employees’ growth and advancement.
As an employee-owned company, we share a common interest in ARA’s success and we work together for the benefit of all. Through the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), the company buys stock on behalf of eligible employees, allowing them to share in the company's success and save for retirement all at once.
Being an employee-owner presents a unique opportunity for employees to influence the value of their retirement. The ESOP is not a passive investment – employees have a vested interest in increasing the value of ARA and their account through stellar performance every day. Employees contribute to achieving overall company goals and profitability, which in turn may increase the value of the company and the shares in their account.
ARA employees are not satisfied with the status quo and recognize growth is a necessary, not just desirable, requirement for success. We work to grow ourselves and ARA by becoming experts in learning and opening ourselves to new challenges. At ARA, we recognize the important role professional development plays in achieving our mission and vision and in the careers of our employee owners. ARA supports and encourages career-related and job-related professional development activities.
From on-the-job training to coaching to online courses through LinkedIn Learning, opportunities to learn at any time and any place abound at ARA. In addition, ARA holds annual conferences during which we offer professional development and training opportunities for attendees, and we have a highly effective and customized Leadership Development Program.
Employees may also look outside ARA for continued education through short/crash courses, workshops, seminars, and conferences. When an employee’s professional development goals include university courses and/or a degree related to their career path, they may qualify for tuition assistance. We often subscribe to professional journals and encourage participation in professional and technical associations, as well.
ARA is an employee-owned company dedicated to our core values of passion, freedom, service, and growth. In a recent company-wide survey, our employees’ responses overwhelmingly confirmed our commitment to these values in our everyday professional lives.
