Employee Benefits Insurance, also known as workplace benefits or staff benefits, is a specialised insurance package provided by Australian employers to their employees. This comprehensive coverage offers financial protection and support to the workforce and their families, encompassing various benefits such as life insurance, disability insurance, income protection, and wellness programs.
The 'Great Resignation' following the pandemic has escalated the significance of employee wellbeing and job stability. As employers, we must prioritize our employees' wellness, especially during unsettling times. Topics like flexible work and mental health support are trending, highlighting the need for holistic employee benefits. One such overlooked aspect is financial health. Recent surveys indicate 72% of employees prioritize family safety more than ever, 62% consider employer-provided benefits more crucial due to the pandemic, but 39% claim their employers don't offer wellness-oriented benefits.
The definition of health in the workplace must expand to include financial wellbeing alongside physical and mental health. Financial stress is a key employee concern and negatively affects mental health and productivity. Data reveals 87% of employees are financially stressed, and 27% see a productivity drop due to financial worries. The situation is severe in Australia, with 1.8 million workers reporting considerable financial stress in 2020.
Employee Benefits Insurance holds significant importance in the workplace as it plays a crucial role in attracting and retaining skilled talent. By offering a comprehensive benefits package, companies can enhance their appeal to potential employees, making them more competitive in the job market. This leads to increased job satisfaction and loyalty among the workforce, fostering a positive and productive work environment.
In addition, Employee Benefits Insurance provides essential financial security to employees during challenging times. Whether facing health issues, disability, or planning for financial security, the benefits offered by this insurance scheme serve as a safety net, providing peace of mind and stability for employees and their families.
