Supplemental Financial Protection
Through a partnership with Colonial Life, we are able to offer employees additional financial protection, which can help when you have a health problem.

Employee Assistance Program
Life is full of ups and downs. Knowing that, Pride Transport provides our employees with a great source for health information 24-hours-a-day. The Employee Assistance Program not only provides information on how to reach a doctor, but also health coaching, emotional support, a Health Information Library, and access to legal and financial professionals.
Basic Life Insurance
Full-time, eligible employees receive a life insurance policy on their eligibility date which covers $15,000 for the employee, $5,000 for the spouse, and $2,000 for each dependent child. Pride pays the life insurance premiums for the basic life policy. Life insurance is through Prudential Insurance Companies.
Supplemental Life Insurance
Sometimes employees need more than the basic life insurance coverage. To help these employees, Pride offers supplemental life insurance at very low group rates. Supplemental life insurance is also available for spouses and children.
Health and Dental
Pride employees have the option to select from 4 plans offered through United Healthcare – from HMO plans to PPO plans. United Healthcare is a nationwide provider of high-quality healthcare with award-winning smart phone apps to help participants stay connected with their benefits. To ensure its employees can afford health insurance, Pride pays at least 70% of the individual health insurance plan for full-time, eligible employees. Non-tobacco users receive an additional 5% paid by Pride.
Dental Select is the dental insurance provider for Pride Transport. This is a nationwide provider and we have a very rich dental plan! In addition, Pride pays 93% of the individual dental insurance plan for full-time, eligible employees who use tobacco. For non-tobacco users, Pride pays almost 95% of the individual coverage for full-time, eligible employees!
Pride Biggest Weight Winner
PRIDES BIGGEST WEIGHT LOSER/WINNER
In 2013, we had our first ever Pride’s Biggest Weight Loser contest. Our ultimate goal was to create a focus on healthy livingand to have fun while doing it. Generally, healthy people are happy people and at Pride, that’s very important to us considering the pressure of the industry that we are in. It’s much easier to handle stress if you’re healthy, you have team support and your work environment is fun.
We will continue this contest every year as each year has produced inspirational stories of weight-loss success. We’re proud of our employees and will continue to provide the support an encouragement they need in order to be successful. That’s The PRIDE Way.
