Pay and Benefits

While salary is an important consideration, IHS provides many other forms of compensation that significantly contribute to your overall experience and make IHS a competitive employer. This concept of “Total Compensation” includes not only salary, but also the benefits, awards, leave, retirement and other incentives you may receive as part of a rewarding work environment. These are just some of the many ways that IHS recognizes employee contributions. 

For personalized information on the total value of employee compensation and benefits, current IHS employees can access the Government Retirement and Benefits (GRB) Platform Exit Disclaimer: You Are Leaving . Instructions regarding how to create a GRB account and the HHS GRB license number can be found on the GRB section of the HHS Intranet Exit Disclaimer: You Are Leaving . The GRB Platform allows you to view and print a Total Compensation Statement that provides a comprehensive picture of your compensation, including salary, benefits and retirement information.

Attracting and retaining top-level talent in a variety of different clinical, technical, professional, and administrative areas is key to accomplishing IHS’s mission. The Total Compensation offered to all members of the IHS team is an important tool in making IHS an employer of choice.
