Rising health care costs, an aging workforce and growing rates of chronic disease have combined to make workforce health a major business concern.
The issue can be especially critical for multinational corporations and single-country organizations with multiple locations. One challenge is to control health care costs while keeping employees healthy and productive. At the same time, health care benefits must be considered in the context of the total benefit spend and in light of the organization’s overall business goals.
- Do you have the data and competencies to evaluate your employee population health risks and needs?
- Have you developed global and local health and group benefit strategies?
- How well do you design, implement, fund and manage a variety of health and group benefit programs?
- Are you happy with your vendor management?
The answers to these and other questions can help you reshape your health benefits philosophy and programs with the ultimate goals of controlling costs for the long term, maintaining a healthy workforce and aligning your health benefits with the goals of your total rewards and benefits programs.
