Let our employment benefits improve yours.
At Watkins Wellness®, we work hard to create a supportive environment that puts people first. We are committed to our ongoing intent to offer our employees a comprehensive benefits package to make their lives better.
When it comes to benefits, everyone has different needs and priorities. With this in mind, our employees have the freedom to choose a plan that best suits their needs.
Our work culture empowers employees and their family members to invest in their wellness, and encourages them to maintain a healthy work/life balance.
All employees are enrolled in an annual bonus incentive program designed to recognize their performance and contributions toward Watkins’ achievement of company-wide objectives, as approved by our parent company, Masco.
This plan enables employees to benefit from the company’s success by receiving a share of its profits.

Employees become 100% vested in the profit sharing plan contributions on the third anniversary of their hire date.
