As a business owner or leader, you know that your organization’s most important assets are your employees. After all, without your people, there is no way for you to operate, much less cater to the needs and wants of your customers.
This said, it’s vital you show your employees that you genuinely care about and value them. And one way to do this is through offering your human resources with comprehensive benefits packages, particularly health insurance.
The primary consideration of today’s talents
In a study conducted by the Employee Benefit Research Institute, more than four-fifths of participating employees regard employment-based health insurance as an ‘extremely’ or ‘very important’ factor. This applies to whether they are considering a new employer, or deciding whether to stay with their current one.
This alone should be enough to make you recognize the value and importance of giving your current and prospective employees with the health benefits they desire — and deserve.
Good benefits and top talents
Offering competitive benefits packages to potential employees can make your hiring process more effective and efficient. Your organization wants and needs top talents and workers you can rely on to help grow your business, but you can’t expect to attract them with mediocre benefits.
And in today’s ever-competitive market, you can miss out and lose a lot when they chose the competition because of better non-cash compensation offers.
A health-centered work environment means a productive workplace
As more professionals become more concerned of their health and well-being, it should no longer come as a surprise that they prefer to work in an organization with better insurance programs, even when the pay is lower. After all, they won’t enjoy the money they make if their health fails them.
All in all, employees who work for companies that show them concern are happier and more satisfied. It’s for this reason they perform better at their jobs than their peers who don’t receive the same support from their employers.
