Be Concerned about your Health as an Employee
“It’s the duty of every employee to ask for and strive for different kinds of health benefits. ”
Every business has to rope in services of different kinds of employees. Every businessman provides his employees with perks, bonuses, privileges etc. in addition to the stipulated salary. This is done with a view to encourage and retain the best personnel.
It’s also the duty of every employee to ask for and strive for different kinds of health benefits. This is absolutely necessary, as many businessmen don’t have a good record on this particular front. Many health benefits, that even have been made compulsory, are not usually made available to the employees.
So, being an employee it’s your responsibility to ensure some kind of health insurance for you as well as your colleagues. This is especially true for those jobs that have direct influence on your health. Usually, group health insurance schemes come for cheap and can be afforded by every businessman.
Such schemes are also initiated by the government. For example in the US, Federal Employee Health Benefit Plan’ is an excellent attempt to take care of the health of various employees working throughout the country.
In the same way, individual states also keep on unveiling such plans from time to time. All the more, various insurance concerns and labor unions also take regular initiatives in this direction. The only need is that of awareness in this regard.
It’s common sense that pressure groups can’t function properly until and unless there is proper awareness about a particular thing. Without mass appeal even the basic things go ignored. The same thing applies to a business organization.
Therefore, it’s the moral duty of every employee to spread word about health insurance needs and different kinds of plans available. It’s better that you accept a job offer only from that company that has a well-defined employee health plan in its agenda. Such information can easily be found in the employee handbook.
Like wise you should be in constant touch with the Human Resource Department of your company. This will enable you to air your grievances and you will be able to acquaint yourself with the latest developments also.
Mostly, it’s seen that employees are just busy with their daily routine and don’t bother to get in touch with the HR Department of their company. Such carelessness must be dispensed away with as any medical emergency can mar your as well as your family’s happiness.
