What are employee benefits? Well, they’re things like time off, medical insurance, 401Ks, etc. All true, of course, but in the 21st century employers are reaching well beyond these common offerings to address what experts calls employee “wellbeing.” And that includes financial and behavioral wellbeing. Here, Brie Crawford, Senior Health & Benefits Consultant for Mercer, talks with Rounida Shwaish, a graduate of the Georgetown University Master’s in Human Resources Management, about how businesses are expanding their view of employee benefits. The goal is to meet the expectations of millennial workers and support the health and productivity of all employees.
