By law, most businesses have to provide their employees with certain benefits. This might include health insurance, workers’ compensation and other protection. Nevertheless, many businesses don’t stop at required benefits packages. There are a lot of options out there to support employees, after all. Howimage of manager handing over employee benefit package info can some of these prove useful?

Even if you don’t have to offer employees certain insurance or benefits, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. Optional benefits might prove helpful to your workers in the right circumstances.

Optional Benefits Packages

The perks of a broad benefits package often show up in your operations. In other words, employees that have good support often perform better on the job. For example, health insurance can help them better provide for their medical needs. If they’re healthy, they’ll likely do a better job at work. That's a probable increase in productivity and income for the company.

So, when you set up a benefits package, think of how it can help the employee and the company. Some of the coverage you might consider offering includes:

  • Expanded health insurance options: Some health insurance doesn’t cover perks like vision or dental service. Still, if employees have access to these services, they might be able to perform better on the job. Consider adding coverage to your group health plan.
  • Health and wellness benefits: Wellness plans might offer gym memberships, health screenings, counseling and more for free or at discounts. This can go a long way towards improving overall wellness in the company.
  • Life insurance: An employee’s death means they cannot provide for their survivors. Life insurance can provide a financial settlement to let those parties tie up loose ends. It’s often great security for your workers.
  • Retirement pensions: These plans allow employees to put away money for their retirement. Some plans accumulate interest and cash value, adding more security. It's a way to help employees feel like they are working towards a goal.
  • Commuter reimbursement: If you operate in a city with a subway, you might offer employees a stipend to pay for their fares. This will help ensure employees always have money and resources to get to work.

In essence, the more benefits you provide, the more secure your employees can become—financially and personally. So, don't hesitate to talk to your insurance partners at 734-421-9900. See how they can help you establish optional benefits. You’ll likely recoup the cost of investment with the better performance of your workers.
