New York, NY /PRNewswire/ - FSA Administration Company Clarity Benefit Solutions, offers ways that employers can optimize the employee experience through their employee benefit offerings.
The employee experience begins at the first contact during the recruitment process and spans across every interaction the employee has with a company. Since most employees spend a large amount of time at work, the employee experience can make or break an employee's overall attitude toward work. It is important that employers make the employee experience enjoyable, engaging, and satisfying. Employees who have a better experience overall are more likely to remain at the job for longer, be more productive, and have a better overall outlook towards their workplace.
Employers can maximize the employee experience by offering specific benefits that meet the needs of employees. For example, majority of the workforce is carrying at least some amount of student debt. Offering student loan repayment programs to assist employees in this area lets them know that you are hearing their needs, which makes them feel more valued as individuals. Another example is offering commuter benefit options if your workplace is in an urban setting, so your employees do not have to sacrifice as much income on their commute. Since the employee experience covers all facets of their work, addressing their commute could make a big difference.
You can also offer benefits that address the needs of the people your employees care for. Statistically, almost half of employees are responsible for an adult child, parent, grandparent or in-law, financially and otherwise. Providing caregiver benefits can reduce the stress that employees face outside of the workplace, which translates to better productivity and more positive outlook in the workplace.
Employee wellness benefits also help optimize the employee experience. When employees are healthy and active, they have improved moods, increased productivity, and higher energy levels. That alone is enough to improve their overall experience, but it goes further than that. Employees who participate in wellness programs are less likely to get sick or face chronic illnesses, so they tend to face less stress and fewer missed work days.
Beyond physical health, employers can also offer mental health benefits such as coverage for counseling or on-site services that could drastically improve the employee experience. Many adults face some form of mental illness that affects their workday, but do not seek treatment because of cost or lack of available resources. Making that option available to your employees makes them more likely to improve their mental health, which translates to overall quality of life and experience in the workplace.
