What Employee Benefits Are Most Important?

Benefits, Health

There is a variety of employee benefits a company can offer. You might be thinking “where do I begin?” We are going to discuss what benefits are most important to employees.

We have noticed a shift in consumer trends in the last few years. Benefits that used to be important, are maybe not as important anymore.

Since there are many benefits to choose from, the options can be overwhelming. You can start by focusing on the standard or most important employee benefits.

In a previous post, we discussed “Are Employee Benefits Really That Important?” The short answer is yes; click here to read the reasons why they are so important. Now that we know they are essential, we need to know which benefits are appealing to consumers. Let’s talk about a few.

Studies show that the most important benefits are Health (medical, physiotherapy, chiropractor, etc.), Dental, and Vision. These are at the top of the chart, with over 75% of consumers deeming this the most important! That’s a lot of people. Why? Why are these the most important to employees?

Medical (Physiotherapy, Chiropractor, etc.)

To be put simply, better healthcare benefits will result in happier employees. Offering medical to your employees is generally one of the simplest and most effective steps you can take to reward and attract employees. Offering medical benefits can also have an increasingly good effect on morale, boosting productivity and helping shape a positive culture in your company.

Taking care of one’s health is expensive. This can cause anxiety and unneeded stress, which can cause an employee to be distracted at work—thinking about how they will be able to afford it all.

A Clutch study showed that out of the employees that have company benefits, 55% of them say that health coverage is the most important in terms of their job satisfaction!


Eyes are important! Vision problems make it hard for employees to get their work done, which affects your company. Blurriness can make it difficult to perform essential and easy tasks. But it can be worse. Eye strain can cause headaches, itching, back and neck soreness, and sensitivity. All of those can make work difficult and even result in employees calling in sick or leaving early. If your employees regularly work on computer screens, they can develop “Computer Vision Syndrome,” which can cause eye strain.

By offering vision care, you can help your employees get regular eye exams and glasses or contact lenses that will allow them to see clearly and avoid eyestrain at work. This will, in turn, promote wellness and productivity in your workplace.


Prevention is key. It’s simple, people without dental coverage don’t go for checkups as often as those with coverage. If they are not going for regular checkups, this can cause problems for them in the future. The longer they wait, the worse it gets, and the more they will have to pay. That’s not fun for anyone. By providing dental care, you are promoting wellness and proper preventative care. As a result, you will help decrease the number of severe cases, and your employee will be back to work in no time!

In Conclusion

We are here to offer you more proactive healthcare. We talked about a few of the most important employee benefits. Both our Lifestyle and Essentials program address these employee needs.
