What is Included in Employee Benefits
One of the major components of many employee benefits packages is health insurance coverage. Typically, a group health insurance plan is less expensive for the employee than getting coverage on their own. Part of this is because a group is being covered instead of just a single person, but also because the business often picks up part of the cost as well, helping to further reduce the employee portion of the premiums.
There are other offerings that could also be included in an employee benefits package. Along with the group health insurance offerings you may also want to add dental insurance as well as vision insurance. There are several options to be able to include these for your employee benefits. Disability insurance, both short-term and long-term, can also be included. Many times, part or all of the costs of these policies is covered by a business as they are relatively inexpensive, but it can make a lot of difference in attracting and retaining quality people.
Reasons to Have Robust Employee Benefits
Businesses can sometimes wonder why they would want to have all of these different offerings as part of the employee benefits package, especially when the business is picking up the tab for some or all of these items. One reason is that it sets your company apart from others who don’t offer the same employee benefits, and this helps to attract attention from prospective team members.
A healthy workforce is one that will take less time off of work for illness, whether their own or a family member’s. Your team will also feel appreciated more than if they only earned a salary. Plus, for the business, there are positive tax implications for choosing to cover at least some of the cost of these offerings. Don’t let other companies pass you in offering better employee benefits than you in Loveland, Fort Collins, Greeley, Windsor, Longmont, and the surrounding areas.
