Because of the rules laid out by the Affordable Care Act, providing health insurance benefits has become a norm among employers. Dental benefits, however, remain much less regulated. But while business owners are not mandated by the federal government to provide their employees with dental insurance, it can be a valuable perk to offer those who work for you.
Recent surveys and researches show that next to health care, dental insurance is the most requested employee benefit. Offering dental insurance can be a significant advantage to your business, especially if you’re running an operation with a mostly-millennial workforce.
Offering better benefits will differentiate you from all other businesses in your industry.
It’s well known that insurance benefits are crucial tools for attracting top talents and retaining – if not increasing – employee loyalty. A competitive compensation package shows your employees that you’re willing to invested in their well being, and value their contributions to your business.
Moreover, including dental care in your library of employee benefits will encourage your staff to see a dentist regularly and keep their dental health in check. As a result, they’ll be less likely to miss work due to dental issues and emergency visits to the dentist.
By now, you’re probably almost convinced that investing in your employees’ smiles can be a pretty smart business move, but there’s also a lingering voice inside your head wondering, “Can I afford it?”
