Takara Bio USA offers a comprehensive benefits package, including medical, dental, and vision coverage; 401k retirement plans; company-paid short-term and long-term disability; term life insurance; and an employee assistance program.
Employee Assistance Program
An employee assistance program (EAP) provided by LifeCare can help with confidential counseling, resources, and guidance for many life events no matter how big or small, including parenting, senior care, home services, wellness, legal, financial services, or whatever personal challenges you might experience.
We offer nine comprehensive major medical care insurance options through Kaiser and Aetna.
Our dental insurance is administered through Guardian.
Our vision insurance plan is administered through Vision Service Plan (VSP).
Takara Bio USA will provide travel and accommodation expense reimbursement for any employee, spouse, domestic partner, or dependent enrolled in our medical plan, to travel with an additional support person to the nearest location where care is legally available to obtain abortion services if the state in which you reside in does not offer such care.
