In 2017, job candidates are not just interested in salary amounts, but also the benefits accompanying it. We are now looking to large, well-known companies for direction in offering top benefits for employees. For example, Microsoft recently updated its policy to offer its workforce four weeks of paid leave with an additional eight weeks of unpaid time to take care of a sick relative.

Of course, for many companies, a Microsoft-style additional eight weeks of leave may not be logistically plausible. However, this is where the technological revolution comes in. Startups, apps, institutions and innovative technologies are making their way into workplace wellness initiatives. This movement makes providing employees with access to medical and financial advice/recommendations more affordable and attainable. With benefits programs often strongly influencing employee wellness, it’s vital for companies to understand that happier, healthier employees lead to higher retention rates and productivity.
