DESIGNING AN EMPLOYEE BENEFITS PROGRAM




Corporate perks and employee medical insurance can significantly impact who you hire and how you engage and retain your employees. The design and selection of benefits are essential parts of total compensation costs, and it is a costly exercise when it comes to employee benefits management,


The first stage in designing an employee benefits program is to define your objectives. Which benefits does a company provide its employees to remain competitive?

  1. Determine the Organization's Benefits, Goals, and Budget

    1. Benefits objectives should consider factors such as workforce size, location, and industry to have an overview of the organization's goals to meet the requirement of both the employer and the employees.

    2. Create and manage a competitive employee benefits program that protects employees from the concerns of old age, illness, and death.

  2. Determine the budget and how to get the most return on investment regarding premiums.

    1. Knowing how often and to what extent a perk is used might help an employer decide on cost-cutting design methods.

  3. Communicating with employees about their entitlements and benefits.

    1. Employers can solicit employee feedback and incorporate it into the benefits design process.

    2. It is critical to conduct a periodic review of the employee benefits program and management process to determine whether it meets the organization's objectives and the needs of its employees.

Obtaining employee feedback is one of the simplest yet most effective methods of measuring an employee benefits program. HR can better understand their employees' perspectives on the employee needs and requirements.
