Professionals Want Better Health Care Benefits, Not Perks

Two out of three professionals would rather have better health and wellness benefits than more perks. This preference is more pronounced for professionals over 45: three out of four would choose better health benefits over more perks, according to a survey by One Medical Group. The following are other key findings:

  • 64% say that employee benefits are very important to how they feel about their job and their employer, and 31% say benefits are somewhat important to how they feel.
  • 69% of workers who are over 60 rate benefits as very important, as do 68% of those aged 45-60, 63% of 30 to 40-year-olds, and 55% of 18 to 29-year-olds.
  • 72% say they might choose one job over another if it offered better employee benefits.
  • 67% say that keeping them healthy should be one of the top goals of their company’s benefits program.
  • 49% say that health is actually a top priority for their company while 67% say their employer is focused on managing costs.

Most companies provide medical insurance (88%), and more than half are investing in health and wellness programs. The most common programs offered include employee assistance programs (45%), on-site vaccinations (45%), fitness benefits (31%), workshops (31%) and on-site health screening (25%). But many professionals still say that their employer isn’t doing enough to keep them healthy. Only 52% say their company is making sufficient investments in their wellness and preventative care, and only 29% say their company’s health and wellness programs are making them healthier
