Employee premiums for either plan are paid 100% by OMRI, and dependent coverage premiums for either plan are paid 50% by OMRI. For both choices, you can choose to add your dependents to the plan as well. You can choose to do this even if you do not add your dependents to the PacificSource health care plan.

Life Insurance:

Employees who work at least 30 hours a week will receive a $50,000 life insurance policy through MetLife, with the premium entirely paid by OMRI. This policy also includes a $50,000 Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance.

Short Term Disability Insurance:

Employees who work at least 30 hours a week will receive Short Term Disability insurance through MetLife, with the premium entirely paid by OMRI. Short term disability insurance provides a weekly benefit equal to 60% of salary, to a maximum of $1,000 per week. You are considered disabled if you have an illness or injury that limits you from performing your regular occupation, and are under the care of a physician for that illness or injury. For an injury or illness, benefits would begin after a 7 day waiting period for eligibility. Benefits can last up to 12 weeks, or until your doctor determines you are able to return to work, whichever is sooner.

Long Term Disability Insurance:

Employees who work at least 30 hours a week will receive Long Term Disability insurance through MetLife, with the premium entirely paid by OMRI. You are considered disabled if you are unable to perform the duties of your position due to illness or injury. You may receive 60% of your monthly income, up to $6,000, after the end of the elimination period of 90 days. Long Term and Short Term disability are designed to work   together; if you become ill or injured, you first receive short term disability, and if you are still unable to work when that runs out, you shift to long term disability.

Employee Assistance Program:

Through MetLife, OMRI staff have access to an Employee Assistance Program. This program provides counseling and advice to help you maintain a strong life work balance and deal with personal issues that may arise, such as recommendations for child and eldercare services, financial advice, relationship problems, depression, grief and attorney referrals and legal consultations. Through MetLife, Will preparation services are also provided. 


OMRI offers a retirement benefit through a 401(k) plan, administered by Aspasia Wealth Management. OMRI automatically contributes 3% earnings for all regular (part-time and full-time) employees, regardless of the employee contribution. Employees may, but are not required to, put a dollar amount or percentage of their salaries into the account, up to $22,500 per year. Employees 50 years or older can make additional catch-up contributions up to $7,500. Eligibility starts on the first day of the month following the employee’s hire. There is no vesting period; when an employee leaves OMRI, the full amount that OMRI has contributed to the account remains in the account, regardless of the length of tenure with OMRI.

  • Free bus passes for employees who work in the OMRI office 3 or more days a week

    Flexible Schedule:

    OMRI staff can set their regular work schedule with their supervisor, and may adjust it in consultation with their supervisor. As long as you are typically in the office between 10 am and 3 pm most days, most staff can come in early and leave early, come in later and leave later, or adjust their schedule to work more hours on some days and fewer on others. Flexible schedules are subject to approval.

    Professional Development:

    OMRI encourages all staff to participate in professional development and training activities. In addition to all-staff opportunities, OMRI staff will discuss with their supervisors their training needs, and identify methods to develop new skills.

    Discounted Gym Membership:

    OMRI staff can obtain a one year membership from In Shape, a gym about a block away from the office for a discounted rate, by showing that you are an OMRI employee when signing up for membership. (Note: for employees outside of the Eugene area, discounted gym memberships can be obtained through PacificSource’s Active&Fit Direct program.)

    Headspace Subscription:

    OMRI staff can access Headspace for Work, a science-supported app to help employees practice mindfulness, reduce stress, and improve focus and well-being. The Headspace app offers over 1,000 hours of content and 24/7 access.
