Employee Wellbeing Research 2018: Employers failing to integrate health insurance with wellbeing

Businesses are failing to integrate the health insurance products their suppliers offer into their overall wellbeing plan and are missing out on benefits as a result.

The conclusion comes from the Employee Wellbeing Research 2018 published by Reward & Employee Benefits Association (REBA) in association with Punter Southall Health & Protection.

In the study a third (32.2%) of respondents said that health insurance and wellbeing plans weren’t integrated at all and half (52.5%) said they were only partly integrated. The results showed that only one in six of respondents to the survey (15.3%) said that they were fully integrated.

“Businesses are missing a trick to better integrate their strategies here and reap the benefits of a more joined up approach,” said Debi O’Donovan, director at the Reward & Employee Benefits Association.

“By better integrating their insurance offerings with other health diagnostic and treatment offerings employers could both save money and provide a better service for employees,” she said.
