Find Your Purpose
Working at Wellmark
A great career is about flourishing — in your work, health and life. At Wellmark, we equip you with the tools to do just that.
The financial well-being of our employees is important to us. Our competitive compensation program inspires excellence and rewards performance. With an eye to your future, we also provide a variety of retirement benefit options, including a very competitive 401(k) and cash-balance pension plan.
Not surprisingly, our employees enjoy robust, affordable health insurance, with balanced plan designs and a competitive employer contribution. Onsite fitness facilities and numerous wellness programs empower our employees to get and stay healthy. Plus, Wellmark is a tobacco-free workplace.
We know finding that right work/life blend is critical to our employees’ success, both in the office and at home. But we recognize it’s different for everyone. So, we offer a flexible Paid Time Off (PTO) program that combines vacation, personal leave and sick leave into a single "time bank.” With time in the bank, our employees make the withdrawals that give them the balance they need.
Wellmark encourages you to give back to your community.
Employees are encouraged to put their passion to work and affect change through the BluesCare Giving program. For every 24 hours you volunteer in the community, you can designate $1,000 to the qualifying nonprofit of your choice. We also support what you support, matching your financial contributions to eligible nonprofits, dollar-for-dollar.
The goal of every Wellmark employee is to help transform the health care system.
By improving the health of ourselves, our members and our communities and upgrading the delivery of care, we can measurably reduce the rate of future health care cost increases. Flexible benefit designs, competitive prices, a vast provider network, and exceptional service help ensure more people have access to quality health care. It’s a culture of health worth committing to.
