Why provide group benefits to your employees?

  1. A competitive edge in the job market: You attract and retain employees, which helps minimize costs associated with high turnover.
  2. Access to insurance at a reduced cost compared to most health and dental individual insurance plans. Group plans do not discriminate and are not anti-selective, offering all participants the same benefit plan.
  3. A cost effective method to protect employees: Increase productivity and higher morale by providing financial security and support to employees.
  4. A tax effective form of compensation: Most premiums an employer pays are tax deductible as a business expense.

A company group insurance plan shares the financial risk of health related expenses among the group of employees, under one contract, who pay into a fund or pool.

Tips to maximize your group benefits

Here are several ideas that will help you to maximize the value of your benefit plan:

Know what protection your company needs: Several things matter when you are choosing a group benefit plan for your staff, such as the composition of your workforce, their needs, and any previous claims history.

Understand pieces of coverage you want to combine: A group benefit plan can combine products, such as health and dental coverage, disability insurance, critical illness, life insurance, and even travel insurance.

Coverage limits matter: Having coverage does not mean having enough coverage – pay attention to how much of your employees’ health care costs will be covered under the group plan. Coverage of 70% of dental costs is different from 100% coverage. Higher coverage makes your plan much more superior in eyes of your employees.

Travel a lot for work? Protect your staff: If your staff has to travel a lot, both across Canada and abroad, make sure you have enough travel insurance incorporated into your group benefits.

Getting a solid group benefit plan is complicated: It requires a lot of knowledge and negotiation – make sure that you work with a trusted, independent insurance broker that will compare the market and advise you on all details.
