The cost of offering benefits

It’s understandable to be concerned about whether you can afford a comprehensive suite of benefits for your employees. But those concerns shouldn’t stop you. If you’re on the fence, follow these steps:

  • Different employees want different things. Figuring out what kinds of benefits your employees value most will help you determine how your benefits package should look. For instance, they may value dental and vision coverage or want different types of voluntary benefits, such as critical illness or hospital indemnity coverage.

  • Some employee benefit structures might be more financially viable than others. It’s important to determine how much of the financial responsibility can and should reside with you, or with employees.

  • Not all insurance carriers offer the types of benefits your employees want. Further, working with multiple carriers for different benefits might present more of a challenge than it’s worth. It’s helpful to find a carrier that can seamlessly provide all the benefits you want to offer your employees.

  • Meeting with a financial representative can help you assess what your business can realistically afford now, then make a plan for how you’d like your benefits portfolio to change over time so you can continue to build on the success of your business and meet your employees’ evolving needs.
