Why a group insurance program is a win-win for employers and employees

This past year our work and home lives have changed a lot. It makes sense that so have the needs of your employees. Studies have shown that 48% of full-time workers feel their current rewards don’t meet their needs. Today, employees are looking for services and benefits that help them live better lives - both personally and professionally. Offering your employees tools and education on financial wellness is one way you can help bridge this gap.

Nearly half of the average household budget goes towards housing and transportation1. So, saving on home and auto insurance can help reduce financial stress. A group insurance plan is a great solution that’s also easy to implement for employers.
