There are job benefits, like free espresso and donuts in the break room, and then there are real-life necessary benefits.
It's that second group we focus on to create a great teammate experience at Hologram – though we would never turn down a donut. 🍩
Our philosophy? We're creating a thriving and healthy team, where Hologrammers can do the best work of their lives. Our company prospers when our teammates have security in their health, balance in their lives, the tools they need to do their work, and resources for continuous learning.
In addition to transparent pay scales and employee equity in the company, here's a look at some of the ways we provide those elements through our benefits and perks.
Unlimited, Flexible Paid Time Off
The science is clear – taking ample vacation time improves productivity, efficiency, and mental health. At Hologram, we believe the research.
More importantly, we believe our team has the right to live well outside of work. Hologrammers never have to worry about running out of PTO — because they never do. On a team with trust and open communication, employees know when they need a break, and we trust them to take care of themselves.
So how does unlimited PTO actually work? It’s simple. Take a day off to attend your child’s kindergarten graduation, even if it’s just a few weeks after you return from vacation. We wouldn’t want you to miss that!
In case anyone needs a nudge, we do mandate at least two weeks off per year, though four weeks is our recommendation.
Hologram also realizes that working 9-5 often prevents people from taking care of ordinary tasks and responsibilities. So if you need to go to the grocery store during the day rather than at rush hour, go for it. If your favorite yoga instructor only teaches on Fridays at 9 a.m., namaste. Just communicate with us, and you’re free to do what you need.
Mental Health Days, Volunteer Time and More
In addition to unlimited time off and 10 company-wide holidays, we also offer other important types of time off.
We ask Hologrammers to take at least one day per month as a mental health day, because it's important to be proactive about taking care of yourself. Focusing on mental health helps us build a healthy work culture and avoid burnout.
Plus, all employees may take as much time off for volunteer work as they want!
Feeling secure in your health and healthcare coverage can take a big weight off a person. That's why Hologram covers 100 percent of the premium for our team's medical insurance and 99 percent of the premiums for dental and vision.
We also cover 80 percent of the healthcare premiums for your dependents, so your family is in good hands.
Other benefits include disability insurance, life insurance, FSA options, 401(k), commuter benefits, and 529 college savings options.
Family Leave and Care
If you add to your family by birth or adoption, you’ll have 14 weeks of paid parental leave – a policy that is inclusive of all genders and orientations.
Flavia Logsden, Hologram’s Chief of Staff, says the policy meant the world for her and her family. "It was amazing to be able to focus on my baby and family time for her first three months of life,” she said. "I knew my team at Hologram was holding things down and they encouraged me to unplug. Even after being back, balancing work and home life is so much more manageable with flexible hours and our remote-friendly setup."
We want our teammates feel taken care of if they happen to have children or others in their family who rely on their income. Our Family Support Fund offers an extra $3,000 a year for every family member that immediately relies on your income. This can be everything from a child to a grandparent you’re helping with expenses.
Home Office and Coffee Shop Working Perks
Hologram is a remote-first company, and we want to make sure you have everything you need to thrive, wherever you choose to work.
In addition to shipping teammates all the tech gear they might need (laptop, monitor, headphones, Raspberry Pi and more), we offer a home office stipend to help each new Hologrammer build out their home office environment. Chairs, desks, lighting, plants and other furnishings are on us! Everything you need to feel comfortable and productive at home.
But even with the best equipped home office, it's nice to escape once in a while. That's why we reimburse up to $100 per month for beverages or snacks purchased to “co-work” from a coffee shop.
