Offering non-medical benefits can help your business succeed:

Increased productivity.  77% of employers believe employees are less productive at work when they are worried about personal financial problems.* Benefit options can take some of the pressure off. 

Competitive advantage. Employees cite “a wide range of benefits” as a reason to accept a job and to stay at that job.*

Happy and engaged employees. 83% of small business employees say having insurance and/or benefits gives them peace of mind for the unexpected.  And 64% say having benefits customized to meet their needs would increase their loyalty to their employer.*
