Total Rewards Start Here

We recognize that the value of working at UMass Memorial is different for everyone. That’s why we’ve developed a “Total Rewards” approach to providing that value—so you can make the most of the benefits that mean the most to you and your family.

Our employees work hard to contribute to making UMass Memorial the leading health care provider in Central Massachusetts. In return, we strive to ensure that the competitive pay and benefits that are the financial cornerstone of the Total Rewards packages work just as hard to support our employees’ needs throughout their careers.

The Total Rewards program offers a comprehensive and cohesive suite of benefits, compensation, development opportunities, recognition and other programs that demonstrate our ongoing commitment to you.  You can count on us to care for you with the same dedication you show in caring for our patients.


How do we make sure compensation is competitive and reflects the work our employees are doing? Our compensation team actively monitors industry trends for starting salaries and variable pay programs that offer increases based on performance. We also work with department leaders to ensure the responsibilities for every position are properly defined in our job descriptions.

Our proactive and forward-thinking approach to managing pay scales helps us attract and retain the best people so that UMass Memorial stays the most trusted health care provider in our area.


Great benefits attract great people. Our comprehensive benefits package offers something for everyone. Our team is here to help our employees understand their choices, including cost and eligibility, as well as pension plan and retirement savings options.

Affordable Options

We know cost is a concern, so we’ve developed a program that delivers affordable selections. Some benefits are provided at no cost to you, like basic life insurance and the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Other benefits, such as health and dental insurance, short-term disability and flexible spending accounts, are provided at a discount extended to valued UMass Memorial employees.


If you work at least 20 hours per week, you are eligible for coverage under our benefit plans. The benefits you choose are effective as of the first day of the month following your date of hire or transfer into a benefits-eligible position.
