Health Insurance Employee Benefits Attract Top Workers
Most people have an idea of what their dream job or dream employer is like. Workers also know the perks that come with having Fortune 500s on their resume, especially in key positions. When vacancies open up at these companies, competition is stiff and high performers move to the head of the line. However, many high performers are now looking at smaller businesses that offer great employee benefits and more flexibility.
Preparing for Greater Competition
Unemployment rates are at an all-new low in America. NBC News reports that at 3.69%, the unemployment rate hasn’t been this low since the end of 1969. This is great news for employees as it increases their bargaining power. The recent move to increase the minimum wage also means that many people saw an increase in their wages all across the country at the start of the year without needing to change jobs or get a promotion.

The competition for finding, attracting and holding on to top talent is especially difficult for small businesses.
