Duke is renowned in the region for its great employee benefits, whether it be health care, retirement planning, or balancing work and family responsibilities.

But it isn't just the benefits that lead one to a Duke career. A generous compensation package is easy to understand with HR's pay schedules, job classifications, workers comp and more. Even Duke's own Credit Union.
