Benefits & Compensation

Pursue peace of mind.

If the past couple of years have taught us anything, it’s that we’re stronger when we look out for each other. To that end, our priority is to provide a powerful, flexible safety net for you and your family. You shouldn’t have to worry about where your healthcare is coming from, how you’ll save for retirement, or whether you’ll be able to invest in your mental wellbeing. At Aramark, our goal is to give you a strong financial foundation as well as peace of mind.

We take a balanced
approach to benefits.

We designed our benefits to promote a culture of health and wellbeing. No one knows what you need better than you, so we provide you with the necessary tools to help you take care of your health, family, finances and future.

Please note that eligibility may vary depending on your role,
hours worked and location.

Employee Recognition Program

Our Encore! Encore! Employee Recognition program was designed to celebrate our people, who bring our company values to life through their work each day. All employees can receive everyday recognition, rewards for going above and beyond, as well as awards for reaching career milestones. We bring recognition to the forefront through a social media inspired platform, available on both web and mobile app.

Educational Assistance Programs

Our Frontline Education Program provides eligible hourly employees full tuition coverage to earn an undergraduate degree from a top-tier university. Yes, you read that right. We cover your full tuition at no cost to you because we believe financial barriers should never stop you from getting the education you’ve always wanted.

We also provide tuition reimbursement for our salaried employees through the Educational Assistance Program. If you meet the requirements, you can get reimbursed for up to $5,250 for tuition and course-related fees. So, go back to school, on us!

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Yes, we know. Every company has an EAP. But ours is different. Given the recent need for a focus on everyone’s mental and physical wellbeing, we’ve amplified our EAP. We have a dedicated onsite EAP counselor at our HQ location who is also available for virtual one-on-one sessions. And we’ve been providing regular virtual group sessions focused on mental health, as well as ad hoc sessions for our Employee Resource Groups on relative topics. Our commitment to the wellbeing of our employees is real. And we’re invested.

We keep compensation competitive
and understandable.

As a part of our team, you play a critical role in our continued success. To reflect our understanding of that simple fact, we foster a pay-for-performance culture. We link compensation to performance of the company, teams and individuals in a way that drives alignment of objectives and meaningful teamwork. This atmosphere of recognition, innovation and intellectual challenge maximizes the rewards we’re able to provide. Some of the ways we financially reward our eligible employees include:

  • Base pay
  • Annual Salary Planning Cycle
  • Promotional Increases
  • Market and Equity Adjustments
  • Bonus & Incentive Plans
  • Commission Plans For Sales Functions
  • Equity Award Grants
  • Employee Stock Purchase Plan (Myshare)

New for 2021!
Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP)

Through the myShare ESPP, eligible employees can voluntarily purchase shares of Aramark stock at a 15% discount. It’s an opportunity to save for your future and grow an ownership share in the company you work so hard to make successful.
