Types of Employee Benefits

Picture this: a benefits buffet with something for everyone! A plan that covers all of your employees' needs, from standard healthcare and beyond! The first step in designing your employee benefits package is understanding all the benefit options.

Some of the most standard benefit offerings include:

  • Medical/Health
  • Dental
  • Vision
  • Retirement & Investment plans
  • Paid Time Off (PTO)
  • Consumer-directed benefits like HSAs, HRAs, DCAs and FSAs that let employees save money while taking care of their health.

Plus, there are many supplemental or voluntary plans to consider offering as well. These can include things like:

  • Life Insurance
  • Disability Coverage
  • Wellness Programs
  • Pensions
  • Employee Development Programs

But did you know there are several less common, but on the rise, benefits that employees are increasingly demanding? Here are just a few to consider:

  • Pet Insurance
  • Pharmacy Benefits
  • Travel or Commuter Benefits
  • Remote Workspace Stipends
  • Fertility Assistance
  • Backup Childcare
  • Gender Reassignment Support
  • Lifestyle Accounts
  • And many, many more!

When it comes to benefits, the options are endless. It’s important to ensure you’re offering benefits your employees actually want and need. All while finding the right balance between comprehensive coverage and affordable costs.

Consider performing a benefit needs assessment to gauge which benefits are most popular among your employees. You can then use that information to build the perfect benefits package that meets their needs. Not to mention, investing in benefits that employees will actually use helps optimize your budget!
