As organizations take more thoughtful approaches to inclusivity at work, an area lagging behind is the extent to which health and well-being benefits are meeting the needs of a diverse workforce. If some employee groups struggle to access needed health and well-being support, it could have serious implications on the ability of employers to attract, retain and engage talent.
According to this year’s Health on Demand survey of over 14,000 employees from across 13 countries, many of those employees who are most in need of health and well-being support from their employer are the least likely to be able to access them. While 46% of higher earners are able to access health care through their employer, only one in three (36%) lower earners can say the same. Higher earners are also more likely to report access to mental health counselling services, dental care, life insurance and health education through work.
