Counterattacks to turnover

Some strategic decisions are listed hereunder to reduce the turnover ratio.

Start a health benefits cycle

Every employee has different needs so they want a program that fits them, that’s why many health programs are built differently. This can decrease turnover ratio.

The old but well-known health insurance is a great option for many large organizations, however, these costs have been increasing and many SMEs cannot pay for it.
On the other hand, workers are obligated to become part of networks that might not be the best fit for them.

Healthy reimbursement arrangement (HRA) is very common in different businesses, this allows you flexible and cheaper benefits. This model permits you to pay for your employees health expenses without forcing them into unwanted medical networks.

A different approach is to offer a taxable stipend, it can look like an HRA but it has fewer restrictions, or regulations on where to spend the reimbursement.

A pack of benefits and perks.

Additionally, make sure to open a wide variety of benefits to your collaborators, also try to achieve that their needs are being covered. By offering these perks you can improve their satisfaction and lastly reduce the turnover ratio.

A wellness cycle is a good way to start. Creating a general wellness plan can help you increase the employees’ productivity and engagement while measuring the most common needs that health packages do not include.

Creating a personalized program can take time but, you can also allow them to access a taxable stipend to cover their gym membership, fitness program, devices, workout gear, etc…

Some other perks could be:

  • Work from home bonuses
  • Portals for education or educational reimbursement.
