To fulfill its mission, “improving quality of life one home at a time,” Rausch Coleman Homes first serves its employees.
Owner and president John Rausch takes pride in speaking directly with all new hires during orientation and routinely walks the office, greeting team members and asking, “Is there anything I can do for you today?”
In that spirit Rausch Coleman Homes actively studies leading, employee-focused companies to identify opportunities to better serve its team members. The company provides paid medical leave, adoption assistance, paid parental bonding leave, generous 401(k) and Health Savings Account (HSA) contribution matching and summer flex scheduling, with additional benefits soon to be introduced.
Rausch Coleman Homes offers two health insurance options, a traditional Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan with deductible reimbursements up to $3,000 per deductible and a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) with an HSA. The company funds an initial $500 for employees and matches 50 cents of every dollar contributed by the employee up to $100 a pay period.
Rausch Coleman Homes provides and covers the cost of AD&D/life insurance of $25,000 per employee and offers a critical Illness with cancer policy, an accident policy and voluntary life/AD&D up to $500,000 for employee.
Life insurance, a critical illness with cancer policy and an accident policy are available, with the voluntary life/AD&D available to spouses and dependents. The retirement plan is a flex compensation plan in which the employee’s salary is reduced by the amount of his 401K contribution. This offers an upfront tax benefit and allows employees to contribute more than the traditional $18,500.
Ugly sweater days and company lunches contribute to an overall festive atmosphere, but the health and other benefits that help people meet life’s challenges are what truly improve employees’ quality of life.
