Employee Benefits

Both Ipsen Biopharmaceuticals, Inc., and Ipsen Bioscience, Inc., are proud to offer our employees and eligible dependents a comprehensive benefits program that meets the diverse needs of our population. Because the overall health and well-being of our employees is important to us, we subsidize the overall cost of our benefits programs well above industry norms. The broad range of benefits that we offer includes medical, dental, and vision coverage, as well as Flexible Spending Accounts and Voluntary Life Insurance plans.

In addition, the company provides Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance and both short- and long-term disability insurance, as well as some ancillary benefits, at no additional cost.

The Ipsen US benefits program also encourages our employees to lead healthier lifestyles by offering employees a gym reimbursement. Covered expenses may include participation in a gym, fitness center, yoga classes, and nutrition and weight-loss counseling through a licensed or certified professional.

Ipsen US employees are also eligible to participate in a 401(k) plan that offers tax-deferred savings, before-tax and Roth 401(k) contributions, as well as a company matching contribution. Under the 401(k) plan employees can choose from a wide range of investment options as well as loan and withdrawal features, and they can have daily access to their accounts. Active employees who participate in the 401(k) plan are immediately vested in their own contribution and also in the annual company matching contribution.

Rewarding Performance

Recognition Program

Ipsen US recognizes that the contributions of our employees is an essential part of our culture. Recognition comes in many forms, and at Ipsen US we have two formal programs in place. The first enables peer-to-peer recognition, and the second acknowledges those employees who go above and beyond in demonstrating our Values and Behaviors.

Compensation and Performance

Our compensation and benefits policy is based on three key principles:

  • Internal equity
  • External competitiveness
  • Rewarding performance

Our Individual Performance Appraisal Process provides a formal opportunity for dialogue where the employees and managers can discuss the company's objectives and translate those into individual goals that are in line with the company's strategy.

  • For managers, it is the forum to motivate and encourage team members to achieve their objectives
  • For employees, it is the ideal opportunity to discuss their performance and any difficulties they may have encountered in their work
