  • Protect your employees and create employee satisfaction with a group benefits plan. 
  • Offering health benefits is one way to ensure employees stay with you.

Recruit and retain great employees 

As a small business owner, you rely on your employees to help build your business. You have a great team behind you, so how do you protect your employees and build employee satisfaction and loyalty? 

Offering wellness programs may be one way to retain employees, but over the long term may not be seen as important. Giving your employees a pay increase is another option, but is it the most cost-effective compensation method? 

Consider a group benefits plan – an attractive overall compensation package. Health care and dental care benefits within your plan can help your employees bridge the gap between provincial health insurance and the coverage they need. 

Group benefits are an investment in your company and employees’ well-being. At any time, employees may be dealing with mental health concerns, serious illnesses, and physical ailments or finding the right work-life balance. These issues can lead to reduced productivity, growing absenteeism, disability, rising costs, and workplace accidents. Group benefits are a key element to building employee satisfaction, improving morale and can help support the physical, mental and financial needs of your organization and your employees. 

According to a 2015 Sanofi Canada Healthcare survey, 77 per cent of respondents say they would not move to a job that did not include health benefits1. 

Attract valuable employees 

An employee benefits plan can help you maintain a competitive position in the marketplace by helping you retain good employees and attract new ones. 

A group benefits plan is an important part of your business’s financial security plan. Flexible and innovative benefits plans – featuring benefits like health care, dental care, disability and employee and family assistance plans – can be tailored to fit the specific needs of your company, whether it's large or small.
