How To Use Insurance As Part Of Your Hiring Package

When it comes to presenting a total compensation package to new or potential employees, managers should include insurance benefits, retirement benefits, paid vacations, and any other benefits the company provides. Many companies reduce benefits to save money, so if you’re providing a well-rounded insurance package, be sure to explain the benefits clearly. This could set you apart and increase your chances of reaching the best employees in your industry.

Workers’ Compensation

Unlike healthcare insurance, workers’ compensation coverage is fully paid for by the employer. This is a valuable benefit that most employees don’t fully understand, lumping it in with other insurance. Hiring managers should be well-versed in how to explain the benefits of coverage not only to new employees but also to job candidates.

While exact coverage varies by state, most offer the following benefits as part of workers’ compensation:

  • Medical treatment - Doctor’s appointments, hospital and emergency room visits, medications, therapy and rehabilitation, recovery equipment
  • Disability - temporary total or partial disability; permanent total or partial disability
  • Rehabilitation - Ongoing physical therapy, vocational rehabilitation
  • Death and funeral services - Benefits provided to family and beneficiaries
  • Lost income - Replacement of some lost wages as a result of injury

If your company goes above and beyond the typical coverage, be sure to explain that to new employees and job candidates.

Other Benefits Paid To Employees

In addition to base pay, bonuses, and workers’ compensation, Total Compensation includes the value of the benefits a company pays for the employee. Every company varies in what they offer, but all benefits have a monetary value that should be considered a differentiator. Some examples include:

  • Paid vacation, sick days and holidays
  • Profit-sharing distributions
  • Medical, dental, life and disability insurance
  • Retirement plans
  • Childcare and tuition assistance
  • Gym memberships
  • Employee assistance programs that provide counseling, legal advice, and other services
