ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the types of employee insurance offerings to attract and retain good employees. Health insurance, either a group or a dual-option plan, helps employees to stay healthy since they receive free wellness benefits. Disability insurance covers the loss of employee earnings due to accidents and illnesses. Under the key person life insurance, the death benefits could provide funds to help the business weather the loss of a key person's services. Other insurance types include work site benefits, life insurance and long-term care insurance.
