Attracting and Retaining Top Employees with Health Care Benefits

April 2 | 2018

Many small-business owners mistakenly believe they cannot afford to offer benefits. But while going without benefits may boost your bottom line in the short run, the penny-wise philosophy could strangle your business’s chances for long-term prosperity. “There are certain benefits good employees feel they must have,” says Ray Silverstein, founder of PRO, President’s Resource Organization, a small-business advisory network.

A tighter job market requires that an organization present itself as an employer of choice, a situation that is leading HR to offer benefit options that appeal to a wide range of employee demographics. Heading the list of must-have benefits for most employees is medical insurance. Providing a good employer-sponsored health plan is a key factor in attracting and retaining valuable employees.

In a 2016 Strategic Benefits survey released by the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM), more than two-thirds of HR professionals said that health care will increase in importance to recruit employees in the next three to five years
