Park City, UT (PRWEB) October 19, 2013
Today, Zane Benefits, the number one online small business health benefits solution, published new information on Employers of Choice.
According to Zane Benefits’ website, a cornerstone of being an Employer of Choice is having great benefits - a combination of attractive health benefits, unique perks, and a great company culture. But with the landscape of employee health benefits changing, new roles for Employers of Choice are emerging.
In the past, most businesses offered health insurance through group health insurance. With this model, HR's role is to select and/or administer plans that best fit employees' needs, making it easy for employees to understand options and enroll.
But, according to Zane Benefits’ website, small business health insurance models are changing, especially for businesses with less than 50 employees. Health insurance is quickly shifting away from a one-size fits all company plan and toward toward consumer-driven and defined contribution health benefits models. These new models, along with new changes under the ACA, place more decisions regarding health care directly in employees’ hands.
With these changes in small business health insurance, the role of HR changes from health care decision maker to health care navigator.
According to Zane Benefits’ website, under these new types of health benefits models, Employers of Choice will be those that offer choice to employees, help employees find the insurance coverage they need, clearly explain and educate employees on the health benefits plan, and communicate with employees regularly on how to take advantage of the health benefits.
