Reasons to care

Sick or otherwise unwell employees can be more likely to take extended leaves for a variety of reasons. When they are working, their performance is also less likely to reach full potential.

A suboptimal healthcare plan may cause employees to avoid getting the care they need, leading to more sick days, poorer performance and decreased productivity.

When employees cannot easily identify the benefit plan that best suits their needs, they may opt to remain in their current plan despite superior options.

Underutilized health and wellness programs carry high costs for employers without the benefits and ROI the programs are intended to deliver.
