The New York City Department of Education is partnering with PetFirst to provide pet health insurance as an additional benefit for its employees.
“We value our employees and want to offer them the resources they need to care for the families – including their pets,” said Dr. Peter Ianniello, Human Resources Executive Director for NYC Department of Education. “We chose to partner with PetFirst based on their ability to offer various policies to fit both the pet owner’s budget and needs of their dog or cat, as well as their convenient online enrollment and reputation for superior customer experience.”
The NYC Department of Education employees 135,000 people overseeing 1,700 elementary, middle and high schools.
“We are honored to be chosen as a provider for the NYC Department of Education,” said Katie Grant, CEO of PetFirst. “The inclusion of pet insurance as a voluntary offering to their benefits package is one way the Department of Education can differentiate themselves from their competition. This added benefit has the potential to increase employee satisfaction as well as retention, and can be an added feature when recruiting new hires.”
