What Do Workers Want? Better Healthcare Benefits, Not Perks

One Medical Group, a healthcare technology company that offers primary care, has shared the results of a recent nationwide survey of 1,000 full-time professionals regarding their opinions, desires, and perceptions about their companies’ employee benefits program.

The data indicates that health benefits can make a significant difference in people’s job satisfaction and may even impact their choice of jobs. The study also suggests that despite offering health insurance options, many companies still have some work to do when it comes to keeping their employees healthy and happy. The results of this survey highlight a growing trend in what employees want: better health care, not “perks.”

Key survey findings include:

  1. Benefits can make a big difference in people’s job satisfaction.
  2. People want their employers to focus on their health.
  3. Companies aren’t doing enough to keep their employees healthy

Read on for survey details that support each of these findings.
