2022 promises to be another challenging year for benefits leaders: Omicron, vaccine mandates, rising healthcare costs, and navigating the new reality of remote work. Just to name a few...
To help you prepare for 2022, we've compiled some recent resources to help you navigate our new normal across healthcare costs, virtual care, and keeping your remote employees healthy.
Over the last several years, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) have joined larger corporations in becoming a self-insured employer. This offers many benefits to SMBs, including saving nearly 90 percent on contributions to employee health insurance annually, not having to implement state insurance regulations and greater flexibility with benefits options.
COVID caused a massive acceleration to virtual care. But usage has been distributed unevenly across populations and among healthcare specialties. Employers stand to save a significant amount of money while driving healthier outcomes by encouraging employees to utilize virtual care services whenever possible.
COVID has also forced us to evolve what the work office looks like. According to a recent PwC survey, employee preferences for hybrid work are all over the map – nearly half (44%) would like to spend at least three days remote. Keeping remote employees healthy in the new year will require rethinking health benefits and employee engagement tactics.
