The primary issue, year over year, HR faces is the rising costs to provide a competitive benefits package that retains top talent and recruits up and coming stars. Employees have also expressed the heightened desire for a better work-life integration to reduce stress and improve family dynamics, which makes superior coverage for their dependents all the more vital. With that refocus, employers must look at the holistic view and that recognize reducing stress has a direct impact on decreasing healthcare costs. It is therefore imperative employers find benefits that promote an overall healthier lifestyle to match their employees’ needs.
Offering career health programs as a voluntary or employer-paid benefit, supports a workforce two-fold. First, providing coaching demonstrates an employer’s commitment to supporting employees’ professional development. Second, coaching, when delivered as a highly personalized experience, yields long-term benefits such as reducing stress and increasing productivity. The employee becomes more satisfied and fulfilled in their role, which in turn leads to a healthier work-life integration.
