Health Care Dominates Rewards Mix, Benefits Survey Reveals
Of all the types of benefits that organizations provide to their employees, health care remains a top focus, particularly as employers continue to weigh the various effects of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), according to the Society for Human Resource Management’s 2015 Employee Benefits research report, released June 29 at the SHRM 2015 Annual Conference & Exposition. The findings are based on a survey of SHRM members conducted in March 2015.
Compliance with the ACA may be affecting the growing prevalence of these benefits, although steady increases in the cost of health care over the last decade have led organizations to explore health care options that actively involve employees in their health care decisions. For instance, 43 percent of organizations offer HSAs, an increase of 8 percentage points over the last five years, and 30 percent offer employer contributions to HSAs, a 10 percentage-point increase over the last five years.
