Healthcare Survey Explores Employees' Favourite Benefits
The results of the 2016 Sanofi Canada Healthcare Survey were recently released, with some interesting findings.
Out of 13 possible wellness programs or policies, the most popular were:
- Flexible Working Arrangements - 41%
- Off-Site Gym Memberships / Fitness Classes - 36%
- Healthy Foods & Snacks - 36%
- Flu Shots at Work - 35%
When asked about their current benefits, employees valued:
- Prescription Drug Coverage - 94%
- Basic Dental Services - 93%
- Vision Care - 91%
While drug plans and basic dental coverage earned top marks, employees are less satisfied with vision and major dental coverage. The survey found only 35% of members were satisfied with their current vision coverage, and only 41% when it comes to major dental and orthodontic coverage.
