5. Proactive updates to benefit offerings are maximising employee support
To ensure a benefits package offers relevant support, it’s vital that businesses regularly review their current offering. This enables them to identify areas for improvement to help their workforce stay healthy. This year has seen an increase in access to counselling services, with 74% of employers providing this service, up from 72% in the previous year. EAPs are also being offered by more organisations, with an increase of 6% since last year.
With such dramatic shifts in the way we work, it’s possible that employees will be struggling with areas such as mental health, work-life balance and finances. Ensuring services are available that cover a range of issues, paired with effective communication to your workforce, will ensure your employees are able to access the support they need.
