Compensation & Retirement Programs

Compensation Programs

OFMQ is committed to offering competitive base pay and incentive compensation. Colleagues meeting performance standards are eligible for an annual cost of living salary adjustment and merit bonus.

Retirement Programs

OFMQ understand retirement should be possible, not just an idea! We appreciate the work our colleagues do for our clients each day; we celebrate their service while they are working at OFMQ and when it’s time to retire! OFMQ offers two programs to assist colleagues with their retirement goals:

  • 403(b) Investment Plan: OFMQ offers employees the opportunity to contribute before-tax wages for investment in a qualified 403(b) plan as well as a Roth IRA.
  • Profit Sharing Pension Plan: After one year of service, OFMQ begins making monthly contributions to an employee’s defined contribution profit sharing plan. Employee contribution is not required to receive this benefit.

Work/Life Balance

In addition to our insurance benefits, OFMQ acknowledges each of our colleagues has a whole world outside of work, and we strive to provide benefits that help them make the most of it! At OFMQ, “work/life balance” is not just something we say, it’s a culture we LIVE! We offer:

  • Regular Business Hours (Monday-Friday)
    Flexible Start Time: OFMQ offer flexible workday start times and schedules coordinated within individual departments.
  • Compressed Work Schedule: We have two alternative workweek options, in which employees elect to work a longer period Monday-Thursday and enjoy either every Friday off or every other Friday off (often called a “9-80” or “4-10” workweek). We also offer traditional 5-day work weeks.
  • Paid Time Off (PTO): Paid Time Off can be used for everything from vacations, to personal business, to caring for a relative when they are sick. Employees begin accruing leave as of their first day of employment. In addition to PTO, OFMQ offers:
         • Paid Holidays - OFMQ observes ten holidays per year.
         • Administrative Leave - Jury Duty, Bereavement, Military Service, etc.
  • Volunteer & Community Outreach Opportunities: OFMQ supports numerous community organizations through our Commitment 2 Community outreach team. Last year alone, OFMQ contributed more than 500 service hours to projects in our community.

Training and Education

We recognize the value of professional development throughout your career. New hires receive an orientation on their first day and are guided through our processes and company culture. Additionally, OFMQ will pay for job-related training programs and job-related CPE or CME courses or conferences that are identified and approved in the annual budget.
