Life & Family
We know how important family can be, and how important it is to be a part of your community. That's why we offer such robust adoption, child care and long-term care programs, as well as generous giving programs.
Our Adoption Assistance Program reimburses eligible employees for certain expenses incurred in the adoption of a child per child adopted. This benefit is available to non-union (nonagreement) employees.
Child Care/Care Support Services
In the Omaha area, we offer a Child Development Center.
We also recognize employees may need help at home to support work schedules required to run the railroad’s around-the-clock operations. The Bright Horizons Care Advantage™ resource provides employees with access to one of the largest online caregiver databases. Featured services supporting better work-life balance include:
- Center-based child care
- Pet care
- Babysitters and nannies
- Elder Care
- Tutoring and homework help
Non-union (non-agreement) employees are routinely granted Maternity of six weeks post delivery for a normal delivery and eight weeks post delivery for Cesarean Section under the Company's Short Term Disability policy.
Non-union (non-agreement) employees not receiving Maternity leave may take Parental leave. Parental leave is a paid leave of up to 2 weeks to actively bond with a child following (1) the birth of an employee’s own child or (2) the placement of a child with an employee in connection with adoption or foster care.
To support your involvement in the community, we offer two programs to enhance employee giving.
- MoneyPLUS Program – Supports and extends employee financial contributions to qualified 501(c)(3) public charities.
- TimePLUS Program – Employees who volunteer their individual time may apply for a $250 gift from the company to support the public charity they assist.
These programs are available to both union (agreement) and non-union (nonagreement) employees.
