We all see it. The economy is all over the place. Meanwhile, companies are scratching their heads trying to find new employees without blowing their budgets. It's a tough task. Especially when new hires prioritize salary and benefits above all else.

So, what can your organization do to craft a better benefits package? One that:

  • Appeals to potential employees,
  • Keeps your current employees happy and
  • Minimizes added costs

We don’t have all the answers, but here are a few great places to start.

Tailor benefits to your organization

Creating a benefits package that is impactful, reliable and makes your employees’ lives better doesn't mean you have to spend big money. Larger companies can laser focus on offering solutions that resonate with what employees actually want. Smaller organizations can look at self-funded options that expand offerings without impacting costs.

Insurance can be confusing, and health care is far from one-size-fits-all, but by offering flexible solutions and educating your employees to be savvy consumers, you put your team in the driver’s seat to manage their health and financial well-being.

Build a benefits package that puts the human back in human resources

There's real data that proves employee benefits play a big role in maintaining your team’s happiness.  And while data is important to your decision-making process, keeping employees well cared for is at the root of what you do. And even without switching health plans, there are ways to improve your benefits package. Things like:

  • Wellness reimbursements to help cover costs of gym memberships, workout equipment and massage therapy
  • Online health tools to protect and maintain your mental and physical health
  • Prescription discount programs to help keep your health care costs manageable
  • Benefits like life insurance, short-term disability or health savings or spending accounts

Think bigger and different

At times benefits can be overwhelming as there are so many options. Deciding what to offer to help make employees feel valued and cared for can be difficult. We can help. We'll dig into your current plan and see how it is currently working for you and if other options may be better for your team.
