A good staff insurance policy is one of the things that can make you a preferred employer. When a role receives health insurance as part of a package the employees are more likely to be happier, less likely to leave for another employer, it’s easier to fill a position, if they are sick they are quicker to return to full productivity.
We all know what it’s like if a colleague is in pain and isn’t able to pull their weight, is often off sick and is focussed on their health rather than the business. We also know how this can put extra stress on other staff and you as the director/owner and impacts on the customer experience. A staff health insurance policy will allow them to get the [VIP treatment] and take them out of the sometimes painfully slow public health system.
If you are feeling like you want to really appreciate your staff a life policy, or some income protection, would go a long way.
A little goes a long way and a policy can cost considerably less than a pay rise. It can also be considerably cheaper than a replacing staff if they are poached by a competitor.
Like everything we do at Cover Yours the policies are tailored to your specific business and it may be that we can have pre-existing conditions covered. We can set the directors/managers up with better policies than the staff, that include families. If the directors already have a policy we can look to match or better their existing policy. The other benefit is that the health insurance becomes tax deductible.
