Workplace Benefits

In addition to salary or wages, many employers provide their employees with additional benefits such as health and/or insurance cover as part of their employment. Taking care of your people with workplace insurance can help your business succeed. By providing your employees with financial support for them and their families you can reap the rewards that come from enhanced productivity and the loyalty of employees who feel valued.

In many cases, a group plan will offer automatic acceptance. This means that staff who have existing conditions may well have an opportunity to be covered for these conditions. It might also mean that any staff members who were unable to qualify for a certain type of cover may now have access to such cover if this is being included by the employer as part of the group plan.
