BREAKING NEWS! Strong benefits help companies hire and retain high-value employees!
In today’s competitive marketplace, companies put a lot of energy into hiring top-notch employees. Considerable effort goes into attracting those employees, from providing comfortable salaries and signing bonuses to the promise of increasing responsibilities and the income to go along with them.
The reason for such effort on the hiring side? Companies aren’t likely to remain successful without top teams in place.
One key way to attract and retain superior talent is by making sure benefits offerings are plentiful, competitive and affordable.
After all, the economy may be rising, but health care costs, including deductibles, copayments, premiums and out-of-pocket expenses, are outpacing wages and inflation.
The results of the 2017 Aflac WorkForces Report are in, and they reveal just how concerned employees are about health care costs and how and how critical health care benefits are to job satisfaction, productivity, retention and recruitment.
According to the survey, 49 percent of employees are at least somewhat likely to look for new jobs in the next 12 months. While employers realize turnover is inevitable – people move, their personal ambitions change, they retire – no company wants to lose top talent over issues that are avoidable, and that includes less than satisfactory benefits options.
