How does IRCO support its staff?
We hire employees from the communities we serve. That is why 80% identify as immigrants and refugees. We accept international degrees and offer office based work experience to new residents.
IRCO fully embraces leadership development and diversity. In 2018, 85% of new managers and coordinators hired by IRCO were promoted internally, 81% identified as people of color, and 73% were women.
Effective January 1, 2018, we raised our minimum starting pay to $15 per hour.
Our open door culture means that leadership is open to immediate discussions with any staff.
Surveys are conducted every year for staff to provide input and opinion on topics including benefits, training, and safety.
Our staff cite job schedule flexibility and generous Paid Time Off (PTO) flexibility as one of the best benefits IRCO offers.
For over 10 years IRCO has offered a robust benefit package to all eligible employees, whether part-time or full-time, at the same rate.
IRCO offers two insurance plans and covers 85-90% of the cost of the plan. Coverage includes massage, chiropractic, and alternative medicine.
Benefits also include life, short and long-term disability insurance which is covered 100% by IRCO—the employee pays nothing.
IRCO has provided training, support, and guidance to employees on the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program to assist employees with addressing their student loans, as well as home buying assistance programs.
IRCO provides better access to a funded retirement to support long-term financial health. IRCO’s 401k is more generous to employees than almost any that exist in our community—with no wait times for entry, Roth options, socially responsible and Muslim religiously aligned investment options, and safe harbor plans with an amazing match.
