Medical

Health, Dental & Vision Plans

IGT offers a superb and affordable Employee Benefits Program. The Company pays for the vast majority of your health care costs (Medical, Prescription Drug, Dental and Vision Plans). Benefits begin on the first day of employment.

Health Benefits

IGT offers several medical plans to suit the different needs of its employees. Employees in all US locations have access to a national network of providers through Cigna’s Open Access Plus (OAP) network. There are three Cigna plan options available for eligible employees.

The Cigna Standard Plan provides an 80% benefit when utilizing network providers and includes an in-network deductible. Out-of-network care is available at an increased cost for the participant.

The Cigna EPO Plan provides in-network coverage only and includes a low annual deductible.

The Cigna Choice Fund Health Savings Plan – This is a consumer-driven, high-deductible health plan that offers a Health Savings Account (HSA). After meeting the annual deductible, the plan pays 80% of covered expenses in-network. Out-of-network coverage is available at an increased cost for the participant.

Dental Benefits

Under the IGT Dental Plan, employees have the freedom to choose any dentist. Employees that use an In-Network dentist, will receive a discounted fee and benefits will be determined accordingly. However, if employees use an Out-of-Network dentist, usual and customary fees will be applied in determining benefits. By using an In-Network dentist, their out-of-pocket cost will be lower. In-Network dentists are available nationwide.

Vision Plan

Under our "low cost" Vision Plan, you may use any provider. However, the highest level of benefits is received when you use an In-Network participating provider. Out-of-Network providers are reimbursed on a fixed schedule.

Prescription Drug Plan

The Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) will provide coverage for prescriptions for employees. Regardless of which plan employees elect, PPO or HMO, they will receive prescription drug coverage through the PDP. Employees will be able to use all the major pharmacies and most independent pharmacies to receive prescriptions.

Short-Term and Long-Term Disability

The Short-Term and Long-Term Disability Plans provide you with income protection in the event you become disabled and are unable to work. IGT pays for the "full cost" of the plans.

Life Insurance/AD&D/Business Travel Insurance

The Life Insurance and Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) plans provide for Basic and Optional/Voluntary coverage to provide financial protection to you and your family in the unfortunate circumstance of a death or accidental dismemberment to you or a family member.

The Business Travel Accident Plan (BTA) provides additional financial protection to your family in the unfortunate circumstance of either your death or accidental dismemberment while on Company travel.

IGT pays the full cost of the Basic, Life, AD&D and BTA. You pay for the full cost (at preferred group rates) of the Optional Life and Voluntary AD&D.

Family

Adoption Assistance

IGT provides financial reimbursement for eligible adoption expenses incurred in excess of the IRS credit, up to a maximum of $7,000 per child following the adoption.

Dependent Scholarship Program

This program has been designed to assist employees' dependent children and dependent grandchildren who plan to continue education in an accredited college or a vocational school program. Under this program, up to 25 non-renewable scholarship awards will be granted each year.

Employee Assistance Plan

The Employee Assistance Plan is provided by IGT for employees and their families. This national program provides information, referrals, and short-term counseling for problems affecting either your work or personal life on a strictly confidential basis. As a member, employees have access to assistance from highly experienced counselors 24 hours per day, 365 days a year.

Onsite Daycare Facility

The Company provides onsite daycare (Reno) and subsidizes the cost to employees. Employees with children, from 6 weeks to 12 years of age, have found this to be a wonderful benefit. Learn more

The goal of The Child Garden is to provide a safe, nurturing environment for the children of the employees of IGT, helping them to enjoy learning and to be healthy, happy and confident. The Child Garden is an infant/toddler nursery, a preschool, a state licensed full-day kindergarten, and has a recreation program for school-aged children. The center opens at 6 a.m. and closes at 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Infant care is provided for children ages 6 weeks through 18 months. Full day programs are available 5 days per week in our kind, loving environment. Each infant is kept on the schedule that is provided to us by the parent. In our effort to provide a consistent, quality program for the infants, our caregivers are scheduled on 10 hour shifts in order to monitor the child's entire day and to provide each parent with a full daily report. We encourage daily communication between parents and staff to help us mirror the care the parents provide at home.

While the children are on jar food and formula, the parents provide the meals along with diapers and wipes. As the children progress from formula and baby food to table food, hot lunch is included in their fees. Snacks, including mild, juice and water are offered morning and afternoon, more often if needed. Each day, upon arrival, the parent is asked to update us on the baby's schedule thus far, last diaper change, feeding, when the child woke up. The center then will fill out a daily sheet letting you know everything that your child did for that day including feedings, diaper changes, medicines given, naps etc. A monthly lesson plan will be posted on the Infant room parent board covering a variety of fun learning activities that the babies will be doing throughout the month.

As the children grow, they move to older infant and toddler classes. Each room provides a safe, age-appropriate environment which gives the children space, toys and equipment to nurture their natural developmental stages. Through exploration, hands-on activities, singing, finger plays and interaction with caregivers and other children, their emotional, social, physical and cognitive growth is stimulated. They play and learn! Each child is assigned a cot for rest time. Art projects, newsletters, etc. will be placed in the children's cubbies in the classroom. Daily sheets will be completed by the center to keep you informed about your child's day. These will include information on meals, diaper changes or potty times, naps etc. The Child Garden does participate in the potty training process. A monthly lesson plan will be posted on the Toddler room parent board. A variety of activities are planned for each day including art, sensory, beginning math and language, transportation, imagination, and group play.

Pre-School programs are available to children ages 3 years through 5 years. These programs are designed to help children develop positive social skills as well as to facilitate their acquisition of fundamental knowledge about the world around them. Our play-based curriculum provides learning centers in each classroom which include hands-on activities introducing the children to art, music, nature, basic cognitive concepts, computers and dramatic play. Circle times promote vocabulary growth and language skills through stories, songs and calendar activities. The Child garden embraces developmentally appropriate practices which allow children to develop at their own pace, emotionally, socially and cognitively. We foster each child's independence and believe that the skills they learn now will help them to interact with others in a positive manner and to meet the demands of the more structured and academic learning environments they will encounter beyond The Child Garden. Hot lunch is optional for the preschool and kindergarten children.

The Nevada State Department of Education licenses our full-day kindergartens. Our teachers hold state teaching credentials. Our extended day curriculum and smaller teacher student ratio allows us to go well beyond the Washoe County School District objectives. The curriculum is based on a "whole language" approach but with an emphasis on phonics. It also includes art, music, language and vocabulary, science and nature, physical fitness, health, safety and social studies. The mathematics program includes the basic concepts of addition and subtraction, time, measurement, money and an understanding of the basic concept of numbers as symbols for quantity.

Once the children enter first grade, parents are faced with the logistics of providing care for the children during school closures---holidays, vacations, teacher institute days, year-round school off tracks, etc. The Child Garden provides a recreation based school-age program for children who have started first grade but have not yet completed sixth grade. The Explorers' activities include field trips, arts and crafts, games and sports, science and nature. Because of numerous field trips, the Explorers pack their lunches, including drinks, every day.

Financial

401(k) Plan

Saving money is important and preparing for retirement is essential. Contributing to the Company’s 401(k) Plan provides employees with an immediate and long-lasting advantage. Employees can contribute to their 401(k) account on a both a pre-tax and/or after-tax (Roth) basis after having completed 30 days of employment. The Company supports employees' participation through a matching formula and those contributions are immediately vested.

Cash Sharing

Based on Company profitability, a portion of the profits may be returned to eligible employees once a year "in cash" as one way that IGT dramatically demonstrates its belief that people make the difference.

Employee Stock Purchase

Employees can participate in the growth of the Company through the Employee Stock Purchase Plan. The purchase price is determined by taking a 5% discount from the fair market value (closing price) of a share of IGT stock as of the last day of the Plan Year.

Employee Referral Program

Employees are encouraged to participate in IGT's referral bonus programs by recommending qualified candidates for positions open within the Company. Current IGT employees who have referred applicants (who are subsequently hired to fill the eligible positions) will receive the appropriate referral bonus.

Educational 529 Plan

The Educational 529 Plan is provided to employees as means to help them save for their children's or grandchildren's college education in a flexible and affordable manner. The Plan allows employees to make post-tax contributions, while deferring federal income tax on earnings.
