In recent years, we as a society have began to focus on our personal health. Specifically, we have been paying attention to our mental health. What was once a taboo topic has become a crucial aspect of self care at home, school, and at the workplace. Millenials have been at the forefront of this movement towards a more mentally healthy society.
Currently, millennials make up 35% of the workforce, and by 2025 that will increase to 75%. Millenials are far more aware of the importance of having a healthy mind than any generation before. Therefore, it is now more critical than ever for companies to be able to provide wellness benefits for their employees. 58% of millennials consider employee benefits when looking for a job.
With the incoming workforce desiring benefits that will help their mental and emotional health, companies have no time to waste to find these benefits for their employees. Employers who provide these benefits can expect to see a productive, efficient, and healthy millennial workforce in their offices.
