How to engage employees once you’ve chosen your provider(s)
Communicating these benefits to your employees is key to improving engagement. You don’t necessarily need a complex framework in place to support employees if you don’t have the means to do so. You may want to adopt an approach which groups the benefits by their purpose, and includes your own internal wellbeing policies e.g. flexible working, holiday, enhanced parental leave, volunteering days, training and development, social events, etc.
In our experience, when employers recognise what is available to support their workforce, and communicate these benefits effectively, the result can be a comprehensive wellbeing programme with far greater appeal to employees than the core life and medical insurances alone.
