Discover some of the top benefits you should offer to encourage a healthy work environment for your Twin Cities company.
Health Savings Accounts with Company Contributions
Many employers are contributing to employees’ health savings accounts (HSAs). This incentivizes employee participation in exercise, movement, self-care, and other wellness activities.
Because HSAs have been giving employees peace of mind during the coronavirus pandemic, the accounts are in high demand. This is especially true as out-of-pocket costs for healthcare continue to increase. In addition to price shopping, many employees are using their HSAs to pay for over-the-counter medicine, feminine care products, and other necessities.
Access to Mental Health Programs
Employers are emphasizing the importance of maintaining employees’ mental wellness. This is especially important as employee stress levels continue to increase.
Many employers offer employee assistance programs (EAPs) through providers covered under the company’s health insurance plans or stand-alone providers. These EAPs connect employees with resources for depression, anxiety, alcohol or substance abuse, legal issues, or other stressors. Employees who use these programs are likely to remain with the company long-term.
Health Insurance Based on Employee Needs
Employer-sponsored health insurance plans should be better customized to fit employee needs. This includes selecting plans with a national network to accommodate remote employees. It also involves providing access to the proper healthcare services for Black, Hispanic, Latinx, Asian, and LGBTQIA+ employees to receive equitable health outcomes. This may include providing a health reimbursement arrangement (HRA) or flexible spending account (FSA) to increase autonomy in finding and selecting care to achieve health goals.
These offerings encourage diverse employees to work for your organization long-term. Your company benefits from increased innovation, engagement, and performance.
