Are Your Employee Benefits Working for All?

If your organization is looking for loyal long-term employees, it's important to have a set of employee benefits that accommodate their changing needs. At Lexmark, employee support is a reality.

"Everyone has their things they're trying to deal with while being at work," says Sharon Votaw, vice president of global compensation, benefits, and HRIS at Lexmark. "So what we want to do is try to provide a wide variety of benefits that can cater to those differing needs as an employee starts at Lexmark and moves along with Lexmark."

Meeting a Variety of Needs

Sharon knows those challenges firsthand. In her own 25-years at Lexmark, she's gone from fresh-out-of-college employee to empty nester, navigating college debt, child care, and helping her aging parents, all while growing a demanding career.

Support through the Employee Lifecycle

That evolution has inspired her own philosophy about the importance of supporting the Lexmark workforce.

"I've worked that whole lifecycle while I've been at Lexmark," she says. "I know that all of our employees are going through different things, and things that I didn't even have to deal with."
