Benefits Considerations for Not-for-Profit Organizations

Posted by:

Every industry has different and specific needs with respect to their group benefits offering.  As specialists in employee benefits for not-for-profit organizations, we have learned that there are a number of unique items not-for-profit organizations should consider when implementing a benefits plan or making changes to their plan.

1. What is the purpose of the group benefits plan for your organization?  Does your organization simply want to offer a basic benefit to employees to provide some support, or does the organization want to compete with the benefits offered in the for-profit sector. Determining the purpose will assist in building the plan that is right for your organization.

Part 7:  Is your Organization’s Benefits Offering Communicated Effectively?

Organizations invest significantly in the total compensation packages of their employees.  They spend time and money determining the right mix of base compensation, bonuses and incentives, benefits and perks.  Employees are generally familiar with their base and bonus compensation but they may not have a full view into how much the company supports them through their benefits plan.  Giving employees the complete picture of both the benefits and their total cost can markedly increase the plan’s value perception.

Part 1: Are You Using Your Benefits Plan as a Strategic Tool to Achieve Your Business Goals?

Your benefits plan can be structured to strategically align with your corporate objectives and support your business goals year after year.  Often organizations do not obtain or examine all of the relevant data associated with their benefits and human capital management.  As a result, they make decisions based on limited data and analysis.  We call this The Reactive Decision Trap™.

Disability Management – Advantages of Early Intervention

Posted by:

As an employer, manager or HR representative, it is often tempting to give an employee as much space as they need when they are off work for an injury or illness.  They need time to recover before returning to work, right?

Statistics show that the length of a person’s workplace absence due to illness or injury increases the longer they are off.  For example, the chance a disability will continue for at least 5 more years when the disability has already continued for one year is 38.5%, for someone age 32, and it increases to 49.2% when the disability has already continued for two years.
