Employee Health and Well-Being



The safety and wellness of our employees is our primary concern. Our benefits package is competitive and comprehensive, providing our employees’ families with protection, security, and quality, life-enhancing programs. We offer medical, dental, vision, life insurance, and prescription drug benefits. There are no pre-existing conditions for our medical plans.

We regularly sponsor races like the Good On You 5K Charity Run/Walk. Our on-site yoga classes and chair massages provide relaxation and stress relief for our employees. For mental health, we provide an Employee Assistance Program at no cost to employees. This program offers resources to employees and their families including in-person counseling/therapy sessions, if needed, at no cost.

Programs to take care of our employees’ health are very important to us. We offer on-site:

At BioLegend, we also understand the importance of developing camaraderie and having fun. Our quarterly all-hands meetings, in which company progress and questions are addressed, come with delicious catered luncheons. A summer picnic, winter holiday party, and several other events punctuate the year for celebration. Our “CommuniActy” clubs allow employees from different departments to come together, get to know each other, and share in activities such as outdoor yoga, gardening, sewing, soccer, flag football, running, dance, fitness, and softball.

Employee Safety



We strive to keep our labs among the cleanest and safest in the industry, starting with a work environment that is conducive to safe work practices at all times. We encourage employees to be responsible for their own safety, as well as that of others in the workplace. Our policy is that employees report safety concerns, near misses, risk and work-related injuries or illnesses promptly to a supervisor, safety officer or to the Human Resources department.

BioLegend maintains an Injury and Illness Prevention Program administered by our safety officer.
