According to the latest Eurostat data, Poland is in the top five countries of the European Union with the lowest unemployment rate. Although on one hand these statistics are a cause for joy, they also pose a big challenge for many employers, who are having a harder time finding good employees these days. In order to be competitive on the market, you have to offer attractive non-financial benefits. At the top of the candidates' list of expectations is private medical care – as many as 14 percent of them declare it important. And although it is already a standard in corporations, it is still a big challenge for small and micro-enterprises, in which only 6 percent of employees are covered by private medical care. Why is it worth investing in it?
Medical care: an investment, not an expense
The specific needs of micro-entrepreneurs
Adapting to the changes observed on the job market and the growing demand for non-financial benefits in the form of medical care, we create dedicated packages for our clients, flexible enough so that we can already include micro-enterprises employing up to two people. In many cases, people who previously worked for a large company, and then set up their own business, want medical care to be a standard in their company as well.
Artur Białkowski, the President of the Board of Medicover Polska.
Private medical care an incentive for employees in the construction and industrial sectors
The advantages of attractive non-financial benefits are also recognised by the entrepreneurs themselves, who have to keep up with the changing market. Non-financial benefits, such as medical packages, besides increasing competitiveness on the job market, are, of course, also an investment in providing employees with a sense of health security.
