Employee Health Plans Affect Morale
Is your employee health/wellness plan telling a fair story?
Health costs are increasing for both employees and employers. Many employers are constantly in flux, making changes to benefits due to ever-increasing costs. However, employers should be very careful about the health/wellness plans and cost changes they implement, according to the TLNT.com. Every change sends a message about a company’s attitude towards wellness and its employees.
TLNT suggests that when companies make changes, they keep in mind the real story they are telling. Three of eight key considerations presented by TLNT are listed below.
- Pricing of employee paid expenses so that preventative and routine care is readily available.
- Making sure that some medications and tools are provided free for common chronic conditions.
- Improving health literacy so that employees can make good choices.
