Excellent options for future retirement planning

Planning early for those much anticipated retirement years is simple at PRF. We have a defined contribution plan with a generous employer contribution of ten percent. If you want to save even more, you can elect to contribute a pre-tax percentage of your pay. We also have dedicated investment professionals who are ready to advise you along the way.


Generous amounts of paid leave options

PRF believes that our employees need time away from the office to relax, pursue personal interests/ventures, heal, etc. and we have a variety of leave options to provide our employees with opportunities to do just that. Options include: Vacation, Holidays, Sick Leave, Parental Leave, Personal Business/Holiday and Military Leave.
