Employee Benefits Need A Revamp

Employee Benefits Need A Revamp

One of the biggest lessons from the pandemic is that the mental healthcare infrastructure within workplaces is insufficient.

Now, real change seems to be occurring as burnout becomes a real risk to both the health of employees and operations of the workplace.

Companies have come to the realization that supporting the employee experience is essential for a healthy company in terms of community, culture and productivity.

The transition to remote working was initially lauded by many, but working parents (especially mothers) found themselves having to choose between their careers and childcare.

Of course, the choice was simple. However, this led to almost 3 million women, particularly women of color, to leave the workforce over the past year.

This loss is detrimental to a company’s bottom line, so business leaders are trying to adopt new strategies and structures that better support their employees throughout this time.

According to a Care.com “The Future of  Benefits” report, 98% of leaders said they plan to offer or expand at least one employee benefit, particularly essential ones like child and senior care and flexible working.

Some organizations are addressing the need for more flexibility by adopting hybrid work models, allowing employees to work in-office and remotely throughout the work week.

Providing this fluid option is not only necessary for workers who want a healthy work-life balance, but it is necessary for companies trying to attract and retain working parents.
