Employee Benefits Equity as retention factor

May 19, 2022 3:30 PM CET BUY TICKETS

Nearly half of the U.S. population has employment based health insurance coverage. Thus employers are critical in helping to close the health equity gap by creating quality access to health services and promoting health literacy.

Employee Benefits can be a key deciding factor for potential employees who are choosing their next workplace and a morale booster for existing employees, especially those who identify as Black, Indigeious and People of Color (BIPOC) and within other underrepresented communities. However, organizations that do not provide equity and education through benefits offerings, will fall short of decreasing the disparity of health outcomes for marginalized employees and their families.

In this presentation, attendees will learn:

  • What are the 5 Social Determinants of Health (SDOH)
  • Why Employee Benefits Equity must be a key area of focus within a DE&I strategy
  • How to create policies and practices that support health access and literacy
