Protecting your assets: are you covered?

    • In March 2015, we conducted a survey of 500 UK small and medium business owners. The purpose of the research was to investigate the disparity between the perceived value of employees – considered by 39% of those surveyed as the most important asset to their business – and the level of investment in employees’ health and wellbeing.

      We illustrated this in financial terms as a business balance sheet and it’s clear to see that while a talented workforce is a highly valued asset, this isn’t necessarily reflected in business spending. Although 74% of entrepreneurs agreed that their employees are critical to the success of their business, only 14% provide business healthcare insurance as an employee benefit, while 23% offer no employee benefits at all.

      Providing benefits like business healthcare insurance can not only protect productivity (getting team members back to work quicker after an illness) but can also protect the health of a business’ bottom line.

      Two-thirds of employers agree that having a team member off sick for four weeks or more would negatively impact revenue. And when business healthcare insurance could cost as little as £20* per employee per month – the equivalent of eight packets of post-it notes – the figures really do speak for themselves.
