Benefits and Rewards

What makes Devereux’s benefit program unique? We are not a one-size-fits-all employer. We offer multiple plan options, so each employee can customize a plan to best meet his/her needs.

Devereux is proud to offer equal benefits to employees with same-sex or opposite-sex domestic partners, and their children. We strive to create an inclusive environment, and retain the talented employees who make our organization a great place to work. In doing so, we believe we will continue to attract high-quality team members to our organization.
