Why offer a business health plan?

4 July 2011 - 5:57pm

In an increasingly competitive employment market, you may want to set yourself apart from other employers by offering staff an incentive package.

Not only do perks help companies to attract and retain the best talent, but the types of incentive you offer can also paint an intriguing picture of what your business stands for.

For example, offering a corporate health insurance scheme shows that you care about your employees' wellbeing - both at work and in their personal lives.

With so many diseases and conditions - including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and even stress - affecting a growing number of Australians, a corporate health care plan could be a popular incentive.

Employees, boosted by better peace of mind, may even find their productivity improves in the workplace - and you may also benefit from increased staff loyalty.

Some of Australia's top places to work offer a corporate health plan, including NetApp Australia, which was named as the third-best place in the country to work this year according to BRW.

If you are considering a business health insurance plan, there are a range of options well worth exploring.

A corporate health insurance broker can help to explain the differences between subsidised and unsubsidised business health plans and ensure you get the right cover to suit your firm's needs.
