The modern design of the American employee is evolving. It’s shifting to focus on basic needs, perhaps the way it always should have been. Enter year two of the pandemic. The safety of the average employee is getting to where it should be: at the top, in the front view, and considered with every decision. Many experts agree that a mass exodus (coined the Great Resignation), of working people, comes from a tiring experience of being unheard for so long.
Staff retention is not as complex as many businesses perceive it to be. When you provide the basic needs that your staff deserves, they know that someone is looking out for them. Investing in your staff is investing in employee retention.
One of the best ways to show your staff that you’re invested in them is to make sure that your business is offering healthcare. Let’s break down the current scope of business owner benefit consulting.
Lead By Example
In April of 2020, the entire world took pause. As people navigated how to continue going to work, many realized their roles were not sustainable. The concern of gaps in healthcare coverage was loud and still is.
In this job seekers market, workers everywhere are recognizing that they can expect more from their employer. Outside of flexible hours and remote opportunities, one of the most sought-after employee benefits is reasonable healthcare.
By connecting with a direct to employer benefits consulting firm, you trim the fat. You make business decisions that best suit you and your employee’s health. With employer healthcare, there’s always a concern that quality will be sacrificed for cost. Consulting is your best case scenario and what better way to do it than through a direct contractor?
When the time comes for you to choose your health plan, use an organization that focuses on the direct-to-employer model. Through this method, you gift your employees and your leadership team something brilliant. A more comprehensive, affordable health plan.
Give your team a plan that highlights gaps in the continuum of care, steadfast clinician support, and quality provider options.
Your employees should have incentives to utilize and feel supported by choosing the best health plan available to them. When your team has the consistent, accessible support they need, they are more likely to succeed.
Showing your organization that they are valued and considered fosters morale and boosts productivity. When your team knows they are taken care of, they are better equipped to handle their day-to-day responsibilities. No one wants to be up all night running through “what if’s”.
The Great Resignation
You can stave off the Great Resignation by providing your team with the stability your organization deserves.
With employee resignation down, business owners can focus on building a stronger foundation. In an unpredictable world, having health support to rely on can change a person’s quality of life.
