What the population growth of Houston could mean for employers

Posted by Paula Turnquist

Houston boasts a steady rate of growth annually with potential for further expansion in the coming years, thanks to the city’s affordable standard of living. People from several national and international locations settle in Houston every year, boosting the economy and increasing profit margins for employers. If employers hope to attract the best talent, it’s important to look at popular benefits offered in other states and countries.

Paid family leave. The United States severely lags behind other developed countries in this area. The only law in effect is unpaid maternal leave with job security; but only about 60% of women qualify for this benefit. If you want to attract top talent, looking into paid family leave is your best option. Universally, it’s the most popular benefit offered.

Retirement plans. Financial security for the future is important for employees. Most older employees are working past the average retirement age of 60. If their employer can help them save or provide resources so they can reach their financial goals, employees are more likely to stay on with that employer.

Health insurance. The best benefit you can give to someone migrating to Houston is the promise of medical benefits. Programs and plans that can adapt to an individual’s unique medical needs, emergencies, and a busy lifestyle, are a company’s best bet. For all of those perks and more, look into customizing a KelseyCare health plan today.
