Tenacious Caregivers

Our Culture

Our strong sense of culture is reflected in how we treat one another and interact with our customers, partners and communities. We are not a top-down organization. We collaborate at all levels – and this makes us better able to respond to escalating market complexities by cultivating trust, encouraging problem solving and inspiring innovation.

Continuous Learners

Personal Growth

Every employee has a Professional Development Plan and is encouraged to take advantage of opportunities at and outside of Apex to grow personally and professionally. Our training experts coordinate learning and development opportunities on industry trends and products, as well as leadership and soft skills.

Valued Talent

Total Rewards

Our employees are our most valuable asset. That’s why we are committed to offering a rich benefits program that helps our employees stay healthy, feel secure and maintain life balance. We also offer workplace flexibility, a collaborative team environment, and programs to help our employees grow and flourish in their careers.

John F. Gause, President & CEO

“We’re an organization that is positively disruptive and constantly evolving. We’re setting the pace for the employee benefits industry, not just trying to keep it. I’m excited about the future for Apex and what that will mean for our employees and clients.”

Serving our community

Volunteering Encouraged

Our Community Day of Service is just one way the entire organization gives of its time, talent and financial resources in support our non-profit clients’ important missions. In recent years, we’ve served Gleaners Food Bank, Little Red Door Agency, Julian Center and Holy Family Church (and enjoy a company-wide celebration after a days’ hard work, pictured). Our employees also are individually empowered to share their passion, time, talents and financial gifts with community organizations with a day of pay (Volunteer Time Off) to serve the organizations and causes of their choice.

In addition, we have a small fitness studio on site. Nearby, within the business park, there are basketball courts, walking trails and a large gym to which employees can join at a discount.

What is your PTO offering?

New full-time employees can accrue up to 15 days paid time off (PTO), consisting of vacation, sick and personal days. PTO rolls over continually. However, PTO accrual is capped once you have reached your PTO accrual maximum, which varies based on years of service; so employees are encouraged to use their earned time off before they stop accruing. Additionally, employees receive a paid VTO day — Volunteer Time Off — to serve their cause or organization of choice.

Why we volunteer

Advisor Jason Clemons and Little Red Door

Jason Clemons, an advisor at Apex, volunteers his time at Little Red Door Cancer Agency, a non-profit that works to reduce the physical, emotional and financial burdens of cancer to Hoosiers.

Why Little Red Door?

I chose Little Red Door because my family was directly affected and impacted by cancer.

What is something you took away after volunteering there?

My biggest take away was the amount of time, effort, preparation and thought that they put into making these individuals’ lives better. Whether it’s providing basic needs, family opportunities or social innovation, they leave no stone unturned when it comes to ideas to help these individuals.

What did you enjoy most about volunteering at Little Red Door? Would you recommend it to someone?

Yes, I would definitely recommend someone to volunteer there. I most enjoyed seeing the entire process of what they do and how they do it and know I was helping to make an impact on a very important topic.
