You might picture Delta Dental of Wisconsin only as your dental benefits provider – but we also offer insurance to help cover your vision care costs through our DeltaVision® plans. Providing comprehensive vision benefits gets us closer to our goal of supporting your employees’ overall health.
Whether or not a company provides employer-sponsored vision benefits can significantly influence a candidate’s decision to work there. Since vision coverage is not an option everywhere, employees have begun seeking out companies that provide it. As of a 2019 Glassdoor survey, 80% of workers would prefer a benefits package over a pay raise. This may seem shocking, but comprehensive benefits carries more weight for today’s employees.
Not only does supplying vision benefits save the employee money, but it also saves a company money in the long run. 79% of employees’ job performance has been impacted by headaches, fatigue, and focus. Additionally, eye exams are vital because they can uncover early signs of health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease that could otherwise go unnoticed and untreated. Although employers will pay more to supply vision insurance, it will help the company long-term by keeping employees healthy, happy, and productive.
Prioritizing your employees’ eyes and health is a must. As you see, offering vision benefits is instrumental when it comes to running a successful business. Feel free to contact me with any questions about how Delta Dental and a DeltaVision plan can be the right fit for your company.
