Health is one of the most important values for Poles, and healthcare is the non-pay benefit most frequently selected by employers. The risk of recurrence of coronavirus as well as other infectious diseases force employees to think more about their health.
According to Deloitte’s CX Drivers study (2020), the interest in private healthcare is growing. Respondents have declared this will be reflected in planning household budgets, clearly showing that the appeal of private healthcare as a non-pay benefit has increased as compared to before the epidemic.
The Deloitte study also highlights another issue. In the case of healthcare, especially in the face of a health threat such as the epidemic, the experience of patients with healthcare services at every step of the way is particularly important. At Medicover, we respond quickly and give your employees a strong sense of being looked after: thanks to modern technologies and telemedicine, they are safe and can use healthcare services without having to leave their homes.
It is also important that this benefit ensures the additional appeal on the labour market. Despite the decline in employment in most industries, some of them fall outside this rule. According to the ATS Element report (2020), an increase in employment is noted in the IT industry and among highly qualified machine operators.
For any company, it is particularly important to attract specialists in their fields: employees who, thanks to their knowledge and experience, will easily face the challenges posed by the market in the new reality. An attractive healthcare offer with safe access to doctors (also on a remote basis) may be an important reason for candidates that apply for positions in your company.
Many companies provide their employees with a simple range of medical consultations as the basic employee benefit. The main reasons behind this include the following:
- matching the employee offer to the available budget, which is often very limited in times of the pandemic,
- looking after employees,
- improving their efficiency,
- reducing the absenteeism.
This extensive approach is appreciated by employees. It results in increased efficiency and satisfaction with the workplace, and has a positive impact on building the immune system of employees: people without underlying diseases, or those whose diseases are under control and constant supervision of specialist doctors, are less exposed to the severe course of many diseases.
The healthcare provided to employees reduces absenteeism and losses associated with employees and their relatives becoming sick. Even the basic medical packages, justified in the post-pandemic crisis, are tangible benefits for employees and ensure savings to employers.
If the market situation forces you to reduce personnel costs as well as those associated with non-pay benefits, you can choose from tailored-made medical plans. We have selected their scope in order to ensure basic healthcare benefits without your company having to bear excessive costs.
Thanks to many years of experience with patients, we have identified health issues for all occupational groups:
- office employees,
- mobile employees,
- production employees,
- management employees,
- sales and customer service employees.
Therefore, we can offer your company relevant solutions that will help keep your employees as healthy as possible, thus ensuring their efficiency.
We are aware of the needs of remote employees, and we know how to support their physical and mental well-being. You can tailor the scope of medical packages to your company’s budget, taking into account the needs of team management in the new business reality.
