Group health benefits help cover Canadians who have protection under their provincial health care program but would benefit from more coverage. In the event of a long-term illness or accident-related emergency, there could be high unforeseen costs and financial worries. This is where an employee benefits plan can help.
The world of employee benefits continues to evolve and innovate as employers like you seek strategies to optimize the value of their employee benefits insurance and programs. A recent trend has been for employers to self-insure some areas of their employee benefits.
Do you want to improve your company benefits plan but are not sure where to start? Or maybe you're conflicted between a health care spending account and a lifestyle spending account? Flexible (or flex) spending accounts can give you choice and flexibility through customizable employee benefits packages that meet your employee's health and wellness needs.
As a business owner, you work hard to ensure your staff is satisfied with the work they do, their compensation, and the group health benefits you provide. You may be wondering: "What else can I do to attract and retain top talent to my organization?" Lifestyle spending accounts, also known as wellness spending accounts, can be an invaluable tool to do just so.
Do your employees ever comment about how they don't get the most out of their health benefits plans? Often, your employees may only need coverage for one or two medical services and can quickly use up their company benefits.
Regardless of the size of your business, the wellness of your executive employees is essential. We understand - the effort it takes your business to recruit, develop, and retain executive talent is extensive. The cost of losing one of your executives or not properly looking after them and their health can be just as extensive and sometimes can have negative consequences.
Flexible and tailored employee benefits.
