Empyrean’s mission is simple yet profound: “Connecting Benefits, Enriching Lives.” At the core of our existence is a commitment to helping our clients connect their employees and their families to the best benefit programs available. We believe that benefits are more than just perks; they are a tangible expression of a company’s culture, and they play a crucial role in enhancing the lives of employees both at work and in life.
Our mission is the guiding star that influences every action we take as a company, from the smallest everyday decision to the most significant business strategies. “Connecting Benefits, Enriching Lives” embodies our dedication to driving positive outcomes for employees, their loved ones, and the organizations we serve.
Our values, known as “The 5 BEs,” serve as guiding principles that shape how we lead, think, and collaborate within our organization. These values empower us to create a supportive, compassionate, inclusive, and energized workplace, allowing us to make a meaningful difference in the lives of millions every day.
We understand the profound impact our actions have on the lives of our clients, their employees, and the wider communities we touch. It’s a responsibility we take seriously, and it drives us to support one another and the communities in which we live.
Sustainability: A Healthy Planet Benefits Everyone
Empyrean is committed to reducing our environmental impact and carbon footprint. We’ve implemented a range of sustainability practices across our operations, including the establishment of our Green Team, an employee group dedicated to promoting sustainability initiatives and educating colleagues on environmental best practices. We also actively encourage our clients to transition to digital environments whenever possible, aiming to reduce paper usage and waste.
Our transition to more efficient renewable energy cloud services and a hybrid work environment, which promotes virtual meetings and reduces business travel, further demonstrates our commitment to sustainability. We’ve also embraced comprehensive recycling programs and paperless office policies, focusing on digitizing processes to minimize paper usage and waste. Furthermore, our policies encourage reduced energy consumption while promoting environmental awareness.
Working Together to Improve Our Communities
Empyrean’s team is passionate about supporting the communities in which we live and work. Through our Empyrean Shares program, we provide our team members with paid time off to volunteer with organizations they are passionate about. We believe in being responsible corporate citizens and sponsor several programs and charitable causes throughout the year, contributing to local causes.
Our commitment to community improvement extends to events like our bi-annual blood drive, which gives us an opportunity to come together and do good in our communities. We also invest in the future by offering opportunities to the next generation through our internship program and partnerships with local HBCUs.
Ethical Business Practices: A Foundation of Trust
We are committed to conducting business in an ethical and responsible manner. Every member of the Empyrean team abides by our code of conduct that outlines our dedication to ethical business practices. We also strive to work with suppliers that meet our rigorous selection criteria, including high sustainability and data security standards. Whenever possible, we engage with suppliers that are certified as minority-owned, women-owned, disability-owned, veteran-owned, or LGBTQ+-owned.
Diversity, Equity + Inclusion
We are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace where every employee has an equal opportunity to contribute to the effectiveness of our organization. Our initiatives include policies, procedures, and programs that support the unique needs of our team members, annual compliance training covering diversity, equity, and inclusion, and talent pipeline initiatives.
We also ensure that inclusive language is used in all our materials and continuously assess our technologies and service approach to address diverse end-user needs and comply with WCAG standards.
