Looking for the contents of a comprehensive employee benefits package? Whether you're an employer who wants to be an employer of choice, an employee suggesting company benefit upgrades, or a job searcher with a choice of employers, these are the employee benefits you want and need.
Every employer needs to strive to offer these employee benefits as their profitability and success allows. They are the foundation for the total compensation package that will allow you to recruit and retain the best employees. Your best prospects won't even consider your employment opportunities if competing offers provide this package of employee benefits - and you don't.
Obtaining many of these employee benefits, such as long term disability insurance, is cost prohibitive for an employee to obtain on his or her own. Since employers can obtain packages of insurance offerings from the same company, the employer's costs are less. And, coverage for all employees is usually guaranteed in an employer offering.
Since no laws require employers to offer these employee benefits, they are truly indicative of an employer who has decided to demonstrate that their employees are valued. Employers of choice value their employees.
