Financial benefits

Pension

Planning for and keeping track of the income you’ll have for the future starts today. Okta helps by contributing toward your retirement through the pension plan.

Okta makes a contribution on your behalf, equivalent to 3% of your annual gross base salary. Pension benefits are subject to a three-year “legal” vesting period as required under German law, which begins upon enrolment.

At retirement, you decide to take your benefit as a one-time lump sum or as an annuity payable for life. Full-time and part-time regular employees (below the plan retirement age of 62 upon joining the company) are automatically eligible to receive this benefit.

Eligible employees are automatically enrolled in the plan on the first of the month following their hire date. Even though you are auto-enrolled, you need to complete and return the enrolment documents provided when you are hired by Okta. Return your documents to Profion GmbH. Otherwise, a payout of benefits cannot be processed.

For questions, reach out to a member of the People Benefits Team by emailing pops@okta.com or connect with the Profion team at nadine.ladwig@profion.de or alan.reader@profion.de

Life and total permanent disability 

Okta provides life and disability insurance for full- and part-time regular employees in the event of your death or total permanent disability that prevents you from working. You are automatically enrolled on the first of the month following your hire date. These benefits are subject to a three-year “legal” vesting period, as required under German law. However, they are “contractually” vested upon enrolment. 

Please note these benefits cannot be paid out in the case of death or permanent disability if the enrolment forms, provided at the time of hire, are not completed and returned to Profion GmbH.

Life insurance

If you die due to natural causes or an accident, your beneficiary receives a lump-sum payment. The benefit is two times your pensionable earnings up to a maximum of €170,000.

Disability

If you become totally and permanently disabled, you receive a lump-sum payment. The benefit is two times your pensionable earnings up to a maximum of €170,000.

For questions, reach out to the People Benefits Team by emailing pops@okta.com or directly to the Profion team at nadine.ladwig@profion.de or alan.reader@profion.de.

Business travel accident cover and travel assistance

Your safety and security is very important to us, especially while you are traveling on company business. With that in mind, we are pleased to provide you with business travel accident (BTA) insurance from an AIG member company. With this coverage, you have access to AIG’s business travel insurance plan in the event you experience any travel inconveniences, security issues or medical emergencies while traveling anywhere in the world.

If you’re traveling on behalf of Okta for company business, you (and your eligible dependents, if traveling with you) are covered if something happens, and there is no cost to you.

As part of this coverage, you are also provided with travel assistance services from AIG. Services available to you include:

  • Travel security assistance
  • Travel medical assistance
  • Identity theft assistance
  • Concierge services

To get started with your BTA insurance, please take the time to review this information:

Mobile phone and internet

Okta reimburses full-time employees for personal cell phone and internet service. A monthly maximum reimbursement amount applies. For more details, see the T&E policy on the Expenses Wiki.

You need to submit your cell phone and internet receipts for approval and reimbursement.

Okta perks

No matter where you sit in the world, our programs help to foster a sense of belonging and to reflect the communities in which we live and work.

Check out the Workplace Services Wiki to see what’s happening in your local space.

Car allowance

Okta provides a car allowance to employees in certain job roles.

Rewards

Your base pay works together with Okta’s bonus, equity grants (aka, “long-term incentives” or “RSUs”), and employee stock purchase plan (ESPP) to provide you with a highly competitive pay and ownership opportunity. It’s how you share in the success of the company you’re helping to build and grow.

Cash incentive bonus program

How the cash incentive bonus program works

Okta sets your bonus target as a percentage of your base pay, based on your job level.

The company’s performance against pre-established objectives determines whether Okta will pay bonuses each year—there is no guarantee. Company performance objectives may include achievement of annual revenue targets, net annual recurring revenue, bookings, and EBITDA.

Long-term incentives (RSUs)

Okta’s equity grants are made in the form of Restricted Stock Units (RSUs)

RSUs are a form of equity compensation issued by Okta.

Okta grants RSUs at no cost to you.

For each grant, Okta converts the value into a number of RSUs based on the monthly average closing price of one share of Okta in the month prior to the grant.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan

You have another opportunity to benefit from the company’s growth and the shareholder value your work helps to create. By choosing to participate in the employee stock purchase plan (ESPP), eligible employees can invest directly in the company—by purchasing shares of Okta stock at a discount.

Buy shares of Okta stock twice a year and get at least a 15% discount on your shares. Eligible employees have two opportunities each year to enroll: May and November.

Questions? Go to the Okta Equity page on The Landing or email Stock@okta.com.

The ESPP may be a great investment

Through simple after-tax payroll deductions, you can purchase shares of Okta stock at a minimum 15% discount.

You decide if you’d like to participate, and how much you’d like to contribute—anywhere from 1% to 15% of your eligible pay. Certain limits apply.

Enrol online in May or November

You must enrol for the ESPP while the enrolment period is open. If you miss the window, you’ll need to wait until the next open enrolment period.

Shares are purchased twice a year on June 20 and December 20

The amount you pay for the shares is the lower of two prices—the offering date price or the purchase date price. The 15% discount is applied to the lowest of the two prices.

Once purchased, your Okta shares are yours to keep

When the purchase period ends, shares are purchased for you and are deposited into your E*TRADE account. At that point, you own your Okta shares, and you decide how long to hold them.

Employee assistance program (EAP)

Okta cares about your health and happiness. But sometimes, everyone needs a little help with balancing work, family, and everything in between. That’s why we partner with Modern Health to provide incredible benefits for your holistic well-being.

Modern Health, Okta’s EAP provider, balances on-demand digital tools with virtual coaching (and therapy, if needed). You set up the approach that best meets your needs. Your family members are also covered, all at no cost to you.

How Modern Health can help you and your family

Modern Health provides support for many areas:

  • Work performance—find coaching and support to improve productivity, leadership skills, work relationships, and professional development
  • Financial well-being—for example, when your student loan debt seems to take over, or you need help with saving for an emergency and planning for future financial needs
  • Help with life challenges—like preparing for having a family, adjusting once you’re a parent, getting help with child care and elder care, and dealing with loss
  • Diversity and inclusion—to better understand and overcome bias or find balance between your personal and work identity
  • Stress and anxiety—for when even small things seem really big and scary
  • Healthy lifestyles—to help you move more, eat healthier, and sleep better
  • Mindfulness and meditation—techniques for managing stress, focusing, and meditating
  • Relationships—with your partner, friends, family, and dating

You can share Modern Health with qualified dependents. Generally, this is consistent with how your health plan defines dependents. Some examples include:

  • A legal spouse or registered domestic partner
  • A child between the ages of 6 and 26
  • A relative that resides in the same household

You will receive up to 8 therapy + 8 coaching sessions per person per calendar year, in addition to unlimited access to Modern Health digital resources, like Meditations and Soundscapes, and Community Circles.

You’ll complete a well-being survey, and from there Modern Health will deliver your personalised wellness plan, match you with the appropriate personal coach, and provide you with personalised links to the Modern Health digital library.

Connecting on your terms

Modern Health provides you with up to eight video sessions with your coach or therapist. You also have unlimited access to your coach through text or email.or email.

If your coach or your well-being survey indicates you have a clinical need—for example, you may suffer from depression—Modern Health will recommend a therapist to work with in addition to your dedicated coach.

As you get to the end of your covered sessions, you and your coach or therapist can work with Modern Health to determine the next steps for continuing your relationship.

24/7 counselor phone support for urgent needs
