Peoples’ wants and needs change over time as they, and the world around them, changes. This is the same for your employees. You may be offering the benefits your employees wanted a decade ago, but are you offering the benefits they want now? Here are some of the benefits employees are looking for and why:  

Remote Work & Flexible Scheduling 

These are two benefits that are becoming more and more common in the business world. These benefits are appealing to employees with long commutes, caretaking responsibilities, or health conditions that make it hard to be in the office. Offering remote work and/or flexible scheduling benefits can also increase productivity and motivation in your company.  

Paid Time Off & Paid Sick Leave 

Many people feel obliged to work to make sure they’re getting the money they need to live. This makes it hard for employees to take time off when ill or when needing to attend an important event. PTO and paid sick leave benefits allow employees to take care of themselves, without worrying about the cost. Having paid sick leave will also reduce the risk of illness spreading in your workplace.  

Virtual Health Services 

While access to medical professionals has typically required an in-person visit, many health plans and providers now offer virtual services. Telemedicine has increased in popularity recently, and with good reason. If you are sick, the last thing you want to do is go out of your home. Telemedicine solves that problem. The Helpside Medical Plan offers Telemedicine services to all plan participants.  


The people who know the most about what your employees want, are your employees. If you really want to know what benefits your employees want, then ask them. A quick survey will tell you what you need to know. 

Now is a great time to review your benefits offerings, even if you don’t plan to make any changes until the end of the year. Helpside offers a variety of benefits options including medical, dental, vision, life, disability, accident, and 401 (k). Reach out to to learn more.
