What are Employee Benefits?

Employee benefits are a form of non-wage compensation provided to employees in addition to salary or wages. Employee benefits can improve overall workplace satisfaction and strengthen employee retention rates. Traditional employee benefits include health insurance, a retirement plan, and paid time off (PTO).

Many companies have started offering new, innovative employee benefits - such as flexible hours, gym memberships, and pet insurance - to recruit top talent in the Millennial workforce.

How Employee Benefits Works

Employee benefits work differently at every company, because employers decide which benefits to offer and how to structure them. For example, some might provide unlimited time off while others accrue PTO on an annual basis. Human Resource departments find that benefits packages work best in terms of recruitment and retention when they address practical needs.

In light of the growing number of pet owners - especially in the wake of COVID-19 - and the rising cost of veterinary care, pet insurance has become an increasingly popular benefit to offer employees.

Pawlicy Advisor offers free employee benefit services, so employers and their employees can receive pet insurance discounts.

Key Takeaways

  • Employee benefit packages add value to workers’ base compensation rate and the company’s bottomline.
  • Employees are generally more motivated to work for employers who demonstrate care in their personal lives, including potential family obligations, health and fitness, and pet companions.
  • The majority of Americans have at least one pet, so pet insurance can be a significant HR benefit that offsets veterinary care costs.
