Health care reform and increasing health care costs continue to drive demand for voluntary benefits, and for good reason. As the cost of health insurance rises, employers continue to struggle to control their company’s health care expenses. Many have already passed more of the premium costs to employees and have increased deductibles, copayments or out-of-pocket limits. For many organizations, voluntary benefits may help solve a number of concerns and challenges that have surfaced during this time of health care financial insecurity. Value of Benefits: 59% of employees are at least somewhat likely to accept a job with slightly lower pay but better benefits. 37% of employees say improving their benefits package is one thing their employer could do to keep them in their jobs. 88 % of employees at least somewhat agree they consider voluntary insurance to be part of a comprehensive benefits program.
