There are many types of employee benefits available to cover your employees. Some of the common and important employee benefits you should consider offering include:
Medical benefits packages are one of the main draws for employees. Workers look for a comprehensive health plan that can cover them and their family. Medical benefits you can offer include:
· Group Healthcare: Group healthcare packages offer basic health insurance coverages such as compensation for hospital visits, doctors’ visits, health exams, procedures and more.
· Dental and Vision: Dental and vision benefits are additional coverages that can help draw in employees. Many basic healthcare plans exclude dental and vision coverage, so offering these can help put you ahead of other companies.
· Workers’ Compensation: Workers compensation provides assistance if an employee is injured on the job. If an employee is injured at work, this insurance can cover medical bills, disability benefits, wage replacement and, in extreme cases, death benefits.
· Flexible Spending Account: Flexible spending accounts allow employees to put in money to later withdraw for certain out-of-pocket health care.
Life, Accident Insurance and Disability Plans
· Life Insurance: There are basic and supplemental life insurance plans you can offer for employees. Life insurance can cover an employee and their families in case an employee suddenly passes away.
· Disability Insurance: Disability insurance provides compensation for a portion of an employee’s monthly income if an injury or illness prevents them from working.
· Business Travel: Business travel insurance covers unexpected travel incidents, including emergency medical care.
· 401(k) Savings Plan: A 401(k) is a must. This plan allows employees to save for their retirement.
Additional benefits to consider include:
· Tuition reimbursement program
· Paid holidays
· Vacation days
· Sick and bereavement days
