Coverage for death is 2 times your basic annual salary, and coverage for disability is scaled between 2% and 10%, depending on the severity of the disability.

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.

Rewards

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.

Enroll online in May or November

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

Everyday Wellbeing

Global wellbeing

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 an incredible benefit 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.

Here are a few resources to help you understand how Modern Health can support you:

Getting started with Modern Health

Modern Health dependent access is initiated by the employee through the app settings. They provide some basic information such as name, birthdate, and email address, and then Modern Health sends a message to them to register. In most countries it’s only available to those 13+ for therapy, and 18+ for all content.

Sign up! We recommend using the Modern Health app to get started, or you can register at Modern Health.

You can also access Modern Health via SSO on your mobile device. Follow these five steps:

  1. Open Okta Verify.
  2. Click on: Launch Dashboard.
  3. Select: Sign in with Okta FastPass.
  4. Search for Modern Health in Dashboard and launch it.
  5. If you THEN download and open the Modern Health app, you should be automatically authenticated.
Take a confidential well-being assessment and go from there

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.

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

Need support now? Modern Health provides 24/7 counselor phone support for urgent needs and critical incidents, extended work-life services, manager support for workplace concerns through their EAP partner, Workplace Options (WPO). You can find more information in this flyer or through Modern Health’s FAQ

Modern Health digital resources

Along with your confidential sessions with your coach or therapist, you’ll have access to helpful courses on a variety of topics that take no longer than 15 minutes to complete. These courses include hacks for your own needs—for example, to prevent work burnout and handle relationships with your coworkers.

Also, check out Circles, which are community spaces to help you learn, grow, and connect across topics that impact your day-to-day life. You have unlimited access to Circles – attend as many or as few as you like. Modern Health regularly refreshes the available topics so feel free to come back if you don’t see something for you right away. You can also view videos on demand, if you can’t make it to a live Circle. Learn more about Circles

Confidentiality assured

Any information you provide through Modern Health tools or discuss with your coach or therapist is confidential. Your name, records, and other private information will not be shared with Okta.
