Total rewards

Zurich protects and supports the work of our business customers, and our employees make that possible. So when you join our stellar workforce, we support and protect you, too. Competitive compensation and health benefits are just the start. Our FlexWork environment and other amenities help you direct your success.

 Competitive compensation

Base pay

Annual base pay is the most visible portion of total rewards. Base pay is designed to be competitive with the market based on your job responsibilities. Our philosophy is that base pay should be designed to allow us to maintain an appropriate competitive position and be internally equitable, reflecting your experience and your performance.

Variable compensation

The Short Term Incentive Plan (STIP) is a pay-for-performance program used to recognize your contributions to short-term business results. The percentage of STIP awarded to you depends on two parameters: 1) the company’s performance on organizational financial goals, and 2) your individual performance, which is determined by your manager.

Zurich also provides variable compensation in the form of sales incentive plans, usually for those employees responsible for the direct selling of accounts. Employees are eligible for either STIP or a sales incentive plan, but not both.
