As the economy recovers from the impact of Covid-19, companies are eager to fill open positions but have struggled to recruit and retain good employees. With competition for workers at an all-time high, businesses are eager to do what it takes to fill job openings and return to pre-Covid productivity and staffing levels.
In today's Aegis blog post, we look at four specific areas of benefits packages and how they can help attract quality talent and keep them employed long-term. When businesses offer irresistible benefits packages, they're more likely to be fully staffed with motivated, top-quality employees and be better prepared to meet and exceed company goals.
Affordable, Quality Health Insurance
Healthcare coverage is often the cornerstone of any employee benefits package, but thanks to rising health costs, employees want insurance options that won't eat up their whole paycheck. Employees also need to know that their health insurance coverage will actually cover their doctors, hospitals, and medication, so health insurance coverage shouldn't be skimpy either.
Companies can attract the best candidates and keep them employed long-term when they offer affordable Group Health insurance that offers reliable coverage and a wide network of providers. Employees are more likely to take a position that offers a top-quality health insurance package that protects them and their family.
Quality Retirement Plans
Although millions of retired Americans live off income from company pension plans or Social Security payments, younger workers can't depend on those same retirement options. For that reason, retirement plans are one of the only ways younger workers can save for the future.
Companies that offer robust retirement options such as 401K plans and company matching are more likely to attract top-tier talent for their open positions. Workers with many years of service ahead of them want access to reliable retirement options and reputable investment groups, along with tools and resources to help them invest well for the future.
Wellness incentives, such as gym memberships and health goals, have grown in popularity among employees as they see the benefits of regular exercise and fitness classes. Employers can win over potential new hires by also including wellness incentives in their company benefits packages.
In addition to helping employees stay healthy and active, it can also improve their productivity and reduced possible workplace accidents and injuries. When employees know their health and well-being is valued by their company, they're more likely to remain employed there.
Finally, companies can gain a competitive recruiting and hiring edge when they offer reimbursements for college tuition or continuing education courses. This benefit allows employees to expand their skill set by earning degrees, professional certifications, and business licenses that can improve their career path while also strengthening the company as a whole.
When employers make an investment in their employees and their skill sets, they can have a more knowledgeable staff and can offer more services to their customer base. Job candidates may be swayed to join a company if they know they can get the financial help and support needed to pursue their educational and professional goals.
