Professionals Want Better Health Care Benefits, Not Perks

Sixty-four percent of working professionals would rather have better health and wellness benefits than more perks. Three out of four professionals over 45 prefer getting better health benefits over more perks.

Benefits are most important when it comes to attracting and retaining older professionals. Sixty-nine percent of workers over 60 rate benefits as very important, as do 68% of those 45 to 60, 63% of those 30 to 40, and 55% of those 18 to 29. Seventy-two percent say they might choose one job over another if it offered better employee benefits.

Sixty-seven percent say that one of the top goals of the company benefit program should be to keep them healthy. And yet, only 49% say that health is actually a top priority for their company. Sixty-seven percent say their employer focuses on managing costs.

Eighty-eight percent of companies provide medical insurance, and more than half offer wellness programs. The most common programs include employee assistance programs (45%), on-site vaccinations (45%), fitness benefits (31%), workshops (31%) and on-site health screening (25%). In spite of these programs, 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 actually make them healthier.
