How PEO Group Health Insurance Helps Retain Employees

Posted by David Peasall, VP, Benefits and Human Resources on Jun 26, 2018 12:00:00 PM

PEOs Allow Business Owners to Offer Comprehensive Employee Benefits at Affordable Rates

In a job market with low unemployment, labor trends show business owners making competitive and comprehensive employee benefits programs a top priority to attract and retain good employees. When employees are healthy, the business benefits. Preventive care and affordable access to health care prevents employees from taking extended periods of sick leave, allowing business to be more productive and profitable. Employees who feel supported mentally and physically also tend to stay with a company longer.

However, few companies, especially small businesses, can efficiently employ enough staff to support a strong benefits program, and even if they can, the cost is steep and should be weighed against the option of having a complete PEO Benefits Department. Working with a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) for group health insurance and other employee benefits allows business owners to offer health coverage without sacrificing as much time or money as they would spend to figure out how to administer a benefits program on their own.

Posted by David Peasall, VP, Benefits and Human Resources on Nov 7, 2017 9:00:00 AM

When an accident, injury or illness causes an employee to miss long periods of work, the personal financial consequences can be devastating. Employer-sponsored disability insurance provides income replacement so that those employees can pay bills and maintain their basic needs. By offering life and disability insurance, you give your employees peace of mind in the event of an emergency or unplanned illness. Employers may offer short-term disability coverage, long-term disability coverage or both but many stick with the more standard health, dental and/or vision plans. By offering these lines of coverage as a part of your employee benefits plan, you are able to stand out in the marketplace to recruit and retain the most talented employees.
