Parata's COVID-19 Response

Employee Benefits

An Engaging Work Environment and More

Flexible & Balanced

Parata places a lot of value on family. We offer flexible work hours and make adjustments so we don’t miss important family events. We also balance wellness activities and fun.

The company observes nine paid holidays and offers a generous time-off package, including adoption leave for both parents.

Great Things Happening

In late 2016, we broke ground on a brand new, custom-built facility. We’ve moved into the 100,000 square-foot, two-floor space, bringing our manufacturing, distribution, and corporate offices in Durham into a single location for the first time since 2007. The building’s modern design promotes open collaboration across departments, improved productivity, and company-wide team events. We expanded the facility in 2020 for an additional 30,000 square feet of manufacturing and racking space.

Our Wisconsin employees also saw a consolidation into a single, modern workspace in 2020. The new office in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, provides workplace continuity across company locations with the same open space and furnishings as in the Durham headquarters — but with more cheese.

Health Benefits

We offer three options for medical insurance through BlueCross BlueShield. Employees can choose between two traditional PPO plans and a high-deductible health plan coupled with a Health Savings Account (HSA). Parata awards free seed money to employees who elect the HSA plan.

Parata also offers dental, supplemental vision, and life insurance; short- and long-term disability insurance; flexible spending accounts for medical and dependent care expenses; long-term care insurance; and voluntary accident, cancer, and critical illness coverage.

Financial Success

Employees can take advantage of a 401(k) plan with a discretionary match, an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), credit union membership, and discounts to local attractions.


Anytime there are 5 Fridays in a month, we celebrate “Fifth Friday.” It’s our made-up celebration that offers a great excuse to have ice cream and play ping-pong or corn hole.

And A Diamond

A baseball diamond, that is. We have season tickets to the Durham Bulls right behind home plate, and employees get chances to take in a ball game with awesome seats.
