The United States is experiencing an ever-tightening labor market, where the number of jobs available exceeds the number of qualified candidates. One way employers can recruit and retain top talent is by offering voluntary benefits and educating employees on how to use the voluntary benefits they offer.
According to Gallup, nearly 50 percent of employees report they would leave their employer for a company that offered benefits beyond medical insurance. Offering these benefits isn’t all employers need to do, though. In order for employers and employees to get the most out of these benefits, employees must be made aware that they exist and be educated on how to use them.
Open enrollment is the perfect time to start talking to employees about the voluntary benefits that are offered at your organization.
