Employee Health Insurance – a vital investment

Your business health insurance protects you and your employees


As a successful employer, your business runs on a healthy workforce, so employee health insurance is one of the most important investments you’ll make for your business. Health insurance as a benefit for your staff can:

  • reduce absenteeism due to long public health waiting lists
  • increase loyalty
  • improve morale
  • increase productivity
  • future-proof your business

Create your best workforce

Company health insurance is a valuable tool in attracting high calibre staff; the lifeblood of your business. Health insurance can be awarded to any staff member, you can have a number of plans in operation and you can opt to make the plan(s) voluntary (where the employee pays) or subsidise it (where you pay all or part) to make it an attractive benefit for the employee. Health insurance has a high perceived value and, employer subsidies make premiums far more competitive and may also entitle employees to get cover for pre-existing conditions. When you subsidise your employees additional discounts can be given to employees' family members making them sought-after in staff remuneration packages in any company. Health insurance plans can also form part of a long-service or loyalty-reward package.

Increase productivity

Company health insurance is one key way of making employees feel valued, and it’s that ‘feel good’ positive atmosphere and culture which will contribute to increased productivity – healthier in every way.
