Gore’s fundamental beliefs in fairness, the long-term view, and that we're all in the same boat underlie our total compensation strategy.
Our success is based on the capability and creativity of our Associates, so our benefits, offerings and design reflect our value for their contributions. Gore benefits programmes are comprehensive and, externally, very competitive.
Specific benefits for Associates may vary from one region to another, however, and are more fully described during the interview process.
Gore’s benefit programs around the world include:
- Associate Stock Ownership Plan (ASOP): ASOP is the centerpiece of our benefit platform globally. ASOP provides Associates with equity ownership in the enterprise while building financial security for retirement. It enables all Associates to have an opportunity to participate and share in the growth of the enterprise by acquiring ownership.
- Pension Plan and Insurances: In addition to ASOP, Gore provides a pension plan as well as an array of insurances to all Associates.
- Professional and personal development: See Growth & Development to learn how Gore encourages Associates to discover a path that best fits their own interests while helping the enterprise succeed.
- Balancing work and family life: Many of Gore’s benefits and services help Associates balance the increasing demands of work and family. Gore provides an Associate Assistant Program for all Associates and their family members. The Program provides services in various service areas, e.g. phone advice, family health advice, personnel wellbeing, child care, care for dependents, legal questions, etc.
