Imagine taking one hour out of your employees' day every month and dedicating it to benefits education. This may seem like a big task when there are so many other things that are considered a higher priority. But, when benefits education isn't a point of focus in the workplace, it's very likely that it's not being focused on at all.
For decades, employers and benefit managers have thought of wellbeing programs as one-dimensional, with the focus on physical health only, by offering benefits like on-site fitness centers, gym discounts or a health program that encourages more movement.
Business owners, HR leaders, and team managers – listen up. Your employees are totally stressed out.
In this ultra-competitive recruitment and hiring environment, retaining current employees is a critical component of firm success. Not only is a low turnover rate good for the bottom line, but it also means you are creating and building upon a firm foundation for the future.
Protecting your business, employees and customers during a time of emergency can very well determine if your business is able to reopens its doors after.
If it’s about 6-8 weeks before open enrollment, you’ve started to realize that you’ve got a lot to do.
