Tips for Employers Setting up Group Health Benefits

Tips for Employers Setting up Group Health Benefits

The workplace is becoming an increasingly competitive environment – and it’s not just employees driving that. Employees are much more aware of their rights, and the benefits to be gained by negotiating work packages to suit their needs. As an employer, you need to be able to offer attractive options so you can attract the staff you need in order to maintain healthy productivity. It might be a good time to look at your group health benefits. New York workers may be juggling many expenses and anything that can help offset costs is likely to be attractive to many of them.

Take a look at the health care package you currently offer. Are there areas where it could be improved? What features might be attractive to potential employees in addition to helping encourage loyalty from your current workers?

Don’t forget, many of your workers will look at the health care package you are offering not only for the range of benefits it offers, but the value for money it represents – particularly those with families – so you need to be thinking about your workers’ household budget concerns when you put your package together.

Employees will almost certainly expect this type of insurance option to be more affordable than that offered on the open market, so coming in just under what they might pay without offering significant advantages may not be seen by them as particularly beneficial.

You need to think of the long-term payoff when you set up group health benefits. New York employees are a savvy bunch. They’re looking for bang for their buck – and looking to you to provide it with this coverage.
