Health screening – In 2010, a study found that 26% of employees would come into work while ill. As of 2018, that has risen to a startling 86%. With so many employees coming into work while sick, it’s clear health concerns and illness can be a significant distraction for employees. A health screening benefit can help identify early warning signs for potential health issues and give employees peace of mind over their wellbeing, so they can fully focus on work at work.
DNAFit – Trying to find a good balance between health and happiness can be difficult when you’re working. With personalised DNA testing, employees can find out more about themselves, their genetics and how that may affect their health and wellbeing. Genetic reports offer in-depth insight and simple, actionable advice on everything from food intolerances and optimal exercise regimes to how your body recovers after injury.
PMI – With the NHS under increasing pressure, and waiting lines up to 18 weeks, it’s no wonder the demand for Private Medical Insurance has been on the rise. But it comes with a downside – namely, the cost. However, a PMI benefit can enable employees to save money and time while looking after their health. Able to be extended to family members, PMI lets your people feel confident that they – and their loved ones – will be looked after when they need it most.
Voluntary PMI – Not only can employers offer PMI to their people, but Benefex has created a voluntary employee-funded PMI benefit which enables more employees to access private medical care. With the guaranteed stability and availability of PMI, and the ease of other salary-sacrifice benefits, voluntary PMI allows employees to take their health into their own hands. And better yet, it won’t break the (employer’s) bank.
Dental cover – We often take our dental health for granted, but the impact of poor dental care can be expensive and painful, impacting your entire wellbeing. In England in Quarter 1 of 2017-18 alone, the NHS provided 9.4 million courses of treatment. The cost of dental treatment, and the time spent in waiting rooms rather than in the office can stack up quickly. Employee dental cover can alleviate the long waiting times of NHS dental care, and is highly affordable in comparison to other private dental care.
Healthcare cash plan – A Healthcare Cash Plan is a common employer-provided benefit across organisations, but often employees don’t realise all that’s included: Many Healthcare Cash Plans also include alternative treatments such as massages, acupuncture and chiropractic treatments. Whether an employee is focussed on their physical or mental wellbeing, these kind of therapies can be excellent lifestyle additions – and they’re often covered under the core HCP, too!
