Employer-sponsored healthcare is a powerful tool

Posted by Julio Iturriaga

Employee-sponsored health insurance has long been considered a crucial benefit by both job seekers looking for stable employment and employers looking for a high quality workforce. Even after major reforms — such as the Affordable Care Act, which created a framework by which individuals can purchase insurance through state-based markets, often with subsidies — the vast majority of working Americans still receive their insurance through their employer. And they're quite attached to it.

According to one recent survey of more than 2,000 U.S. employees, 90 percent said they would be less satisfied if their insurance was dropped. Only 5 percent thought they could get a better deal on the open market.

This is a fact that all business owners should remember. Employer-sponsored health insurance is a powerful tool, not only to keep workers healthy, but also to motivate them to perform at their best.

Let us s​how you how you can save 15-30% on your company's total medical  costs. 

Workplace wellness programs should be included as part of this benefits package, as the morale boosts they offer are almost instantaneous.

According to a recent article in Forbes, 60 percent of workers with access to a workplace wellness program feel inspired by their company culture to make healthy choices, our survey shows. Without a workplace program, workers are four times less likely to be inspired by their company culture to make healthy choices, and only 44 percent are engaged.

This isn't a surprise. Employee health has been shown to have a significant impact on their attendance, ability to focus and productivity. Workplace wellness programs not only offer incentives for healthier living, but also give employees numerous opportunities to make better choices.
