Supporting LGBTQ+ employees with inclusive health care benefits
Here are a few steps that HR and benefit leaders can take to provide wider health care access for LGBTQ+ employees.
Inclusive health benefits can connect LGBTQ+ employees to quality care that addresses individualized needs while promoting an accepting workplace environment.
Diversity and inclusion initiatives for LGBTQ+ employees are essential to create a welcoming and accepting workplace. While a culture of inclusion can be fostered through day-to-day employee interactions, anti-discrimination policies, proper pronoun usage, dress code, bathroom policies and more, inclusive health and wellness benefits that address the unique health care needs of these employees and their families are also a key component.
Inclusive health care benefits are critical for HR and benefit leaders that want to support LGBTQ+ employees throughout their health care journey. Unfortunately, some employer health programs take a one-size-fits-all approach with offerings that don’t meet the complete needs of everyone. By offering personalized and inclusive health benefits, HR and benefit leaders can connect their LGBTQ+ employees to quality care that addresses individualized needs while promoting a comfortable and accepting workplace environment.
