Fairfax, Virginia (forpressrelease) April 10, 2019 - The Northern VA benefits consultants
at BBG Broker recently released a blog educating readers on how to conduct effective employee benefits planning
. Acquiring the right benefits for your employees can create a more supportive workplace that attracts and retains top talent at your company.
Most people looking for a new job feel better about accepting positions that offer them medical insurance, a retirement plan, disability insurance, and eye and dental care. When employees feel they are cared for and respected in their jobs, they tend to feel more satisfied, miss fewer workdays, and remain more committed to meeting company goals. When you offer benefits, you show your employees that their contributions are appreciated and that your company is committed to supporting them both inside the office and out. While not providing benefits might save you money, it can also scare away highly qualified people who can take your company to the next level.
Business owners should consider both required and non-required benefits when planning for their employees. You must give employees time off to vote, serve on a jury, and perform military service; comply with the Federal Family and Medical Leave Act; and pay unemployment taxes; among other legally-mandated benefits. Paid vacations, health plans, and retirement plans are not required, though they are highly recommended. Many of these options, such as insurance and retirement plans, have legal guidelines that must be followed when they are set up. Consider what your average employee would appreciate or need most, and clearly communicate the terms of each benefit -- such as the cost of health insurance or the number of days in advance one must request vacation time -- to help avoid surprises and disappointment.
