In this environment of low unemployment, organizations struggle to find good talent. Your benefit programs can be a factor in getting that talent on board. Consider these stats from a recent Forbes article:
• 87% of employees consider health and wellness packages when choosing an employer.
• 67% of employees who work for organizations with wellness programs like their jobs more and this same percentage is extremely or very likely to recommend their employer to others.
• Nearly 54% of Gen Z’ers and 58% of Millennials consider company wellness programs important or extremely important when making a job decision.
• 45% of employees working at small to medium-size companies would stay at their jobs longer because of their employers’ wellness programs.
Despite these findings, only 40% of employers prioritize their wellness initiatives within their overall benefits strategy and only 25% of organizations leverage their benefits programs to recruit employees.
What are you doing to use wellness benefits to attract the talent you need for the future?
