Voluntary Benefits

Voluntary benefits and perks are gaining popularity among large employers. As health care costs rise and budgets tighten, non-traditional benefits beyond health insurance provide an opportunity for employers to enhance their benefits package with minimal costs. The most popular voluntary benefits include: dental insurance, life insurance, disability insurance and vision insurance.

On top of voluntary benefits, many employers offer a set of perks to boost employee happiness and well-being. These perks vary greatly by industry and geographic area, but can include free meals, tuition assistance, child care, gym membership, company-sponsored sports teams, profit-sharing and discount programs.
