Employee benefits matter!

Providing a robust benefits package can not only help you attract and retain talented employees, it can make your employees feel rewarded and appreciated for their work and that could translate into a more productive workplace. Providing comprehensive, quality benefits shows your employees you are invested in their overall health and future. Studies show that employees who have comprehensive benefit packages tend to work harder and are more dedicated to their jobs!

Managing employee benefit plans in a collective bargaining environment can be challenging for both employers and unions.  It is important to work with your benefit providers to access their support, resources and expertise early in the negotiation process.  Keep education at the forefront of the process so that all parties have a comprehensive understanding of current benefits and any potential benefit options.  It is important to know before a contract is finalized which benefits are available and can be implemented by your provider.
