India has the second highest population in the world, while it is among the nations with the lowest healthcare insurance penetration. It is a mere 14% in rural and 18% in urban areas. Even more appalling is that 7% of the population is pushed below the poverty line due to medical costs every year.
On this Universal Healthcare Coverage Day, Onsurity urges you to pledge healthcare and wellness for your employees. United Nations resolved to call out all nations to provide affordable and quality healthcare to their citizens. Given our sedentary lifestyles, the focus on healthcare has become a necessity. Post Covid-19, the need for and awareness of complete wellness has accelerated. The Indian government aims to expand its expenditure on health services to 2.5% of the GDP by 2025. However, as employers, it is your moral responsibility to make quality healthcare and wellness accessible to your team members.
5 Reasons Why Your Business Must Offer Employee Healthcare Benefits
1. Improve Employee Satisfaction
Healthcare benefits are among the top 3 reasons that increase employee satisfaction, as per a Glassdoor report. A satisfied employee means improved quality and productivity of work.
2. Reduce Absenteeism
Individuals with healthcare coverage are more likely to opt for preventive healthcare measures to reduce their possibility of falling sick. Additionally, a facility that extends to family members ensures fewer sick leaves annually.
3. Improve Employee Retention
Reportedly, 90% of employees stay at the workplace when their well-being needs are met. Additionally, it works as a great employee benefit in the recruitment process.
4. Get Tax Benefits
The Indian government has provisioned tax rebates for companies that offer healthcare benefits to their employees.
5. Exposure to Better Services
The network of corporate insurance providers is larger than those of individual ones. Opting for group healthcare solutions empowers your employees to have access to a wide range of doctors and hospitals.
