When Work Works 2014 Award

When Work Works

Together we've built a world-renowned professional home for more than 35,000 oncology nurses and created educational programs that are the gold standard in cancer nursing.

As a mission-driven membership association, we believe that when our staff thrive, so do our members. For the past two years, we have won the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility. More than an award, it's an indication that our company believes in contributing actively to work-life balance. Our culture is built on trust, respect, and commitment to our team.

Employee Programs

We attract and retain our dedicated staff in more ways than one.


ONS offers a competitive salary package that accounts for our employees' diverse financial needs. Our 401(k) retirement plan provides an automatic safe harbor contribution of 3%, after which we match up to 3% of employee contributions. We contribute to short- and long-term disability as well as life insurance. 

Healthy Living

Employees can choose from one of several company healthcare plans, which include discounted medical, prescription, vision, and dental costs. We also offer flexible spending accounts.

Our wellness committee is always planning new events to help our employees stay proactive. Our newly updated fitness room offers popular programs like yoga and bootcamp several times a week, and the registered nurses on staff perform blood pressure checks on a monthly basis.

Work-Life Balance

Flexible scheduling isn't an impediment to a successful career at ONS. Many of our employees embrace options like the four-day work week or telecommuting days. Our generous paid time-off is in addition to 10 paid holidays and leave for bereavement and jury duty.

Diversity and Inclusion

ONS is committed to ensuring the diversity of its board, staff, volunteers, and members. We define diversity in terms of race, gender, religion, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity and physical abilities. We respect different experiences and cultures across this diversity and strive to create an environment in which all people feel supported, recognized, and rewarded in making their best contributions to the mission of our organization. We aspire to develop and implement ongoing plans for sustainable visibility, outreach, and recruitment to diverse communities. We will attract, develop, and sustain a workforce that values diversity and inclusiveness in all that we do.

Educational Assistance and Career Development

We reimburse our employees for continuing their professional education and fund several annual mentoring opportunities. Performance evaluations and incentive plans are merit-based.

Special Perks

Staff can take out an interest-free loan for a personal computer, drop off their dry cleaning at work, and take advantage of reduced pricing at businesses like Verizon Wireless and Sam's Club. We schedule regular on-site visits with a mobile manicurist and a massage therapist. And that's just to name a few.
