Pass the Turkey and a Side of Total Rewards

Showing gratitude with total rewards

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. As a kid, I enjoyed going to my grandma’s house which was filled with all the smells of holiday cooking and the love of family.

As an adult, I’ve carried on the traditions with my family at my house. And I’m very appreciative that Benefitexpress provides both Thanksgiving and the day after as company holidays to allow for extended celebration time. This is a nice benefit and brings me to my point.

With annual enrollment underway, much of the focus is on traditional “enrollable benefits” such as medical, dental, vision, or life insurance coverage. Employees are reviewing options and making selections for the coming year. However, many employers offer much more than what falls under the traditional benefits umbrella.

Lifestyle benefits such as auto insurance at discounted rates, purchasing power for big ticket items (a new TV for the holidays?!), pet insurance for Fido and employee discounts for tickets to Disney or a voucher for a free turkey all add depth to the employee experience and show appreciation from an employer to their workforce. Don’t let this opportunity pass by without showing your gratitude and communicating the full breadth of what your company offers.
