Hi, welcome to Raffles Provident where your interest is our utmost priority. Today, we are here to share with you some general information on employee benefits.

What are employee benefits?

To begin with, what are employee benefits? 

In simple terms, employee benefits include the various types of compensations provided to employees in addition to their normal wages or salaries. Take for example, foreign workers medical insurance is a compulsory benefit for international employees while fitness benefits can be given to them on top of that as an additional privilege.

These benefits are not required by law; rather, they are provided by companies who feel socially responsible to their employees because these companies recognise that employees need welfare more than simply the mandatory benefits.

Depending on the company, these benefits may include health insurance, dental insurance, vision care, life insurance, legal insurance, paid vacation leave, personal leave, sick leave, child care, fitness, retirement benefits and planning services, college debt relief and other optional benefits offered to employees and their families.

These types of employee benefits can be offered at the discretion of the employer or are covered under a labor agreement, so they can vary from company to company.

Why do you need employee benefits?

Now that you understand the definition of employee benefits, why do we need them?

It is crucial to provide appropriate benefits to your employees as it shows them you are interested in investing in both their overall well-being and their future. A well-planned and organized employee benefits package can enhance your business in the acquisition and retention of talents. Well-thought out benefits can further help to differentiate your business from your competitors. 

Additionally, giving suitable benefits can create a better sense of belonging and value within each individual worker in your business. With these benefits, your employees will understand that they are valuable assets to the business and therefore, they are more willing to work for your business, enhancing your overall business productivity and efficiency.

Furthermore, certain benefits such as having recreational spaces or company bonding activities, can create a more welcoming and warm work environment for all your employees. With better bonds between each worker, collaboration across different groups or even departments can be done more effectively.

Finally, employee benefits can improve your company’s bottom line by engaging employees to participate in wellbeing programs. Healthier employees means reduced healthcare costs for your organization. Employees with fewer health risks experience fewer sick days, fewer trips to the doctor, and spend more time working in your organization, bringing their best selves to work every day.

Hence, we strongly believe that the well being of staff in every enterprise is important. Attractive leave packages, medical benefits, recreational facilities and activities which promote a well-rounded work-life harmony, are provided to ensure that your staff have fulfilling and rewarding careers.
