Geico and Berkshire Hathaway’s Head of Healthcare Strategy and Services, Celine Orsini, joined Kindbody Chief Innovation Officer and Founding Physician, Fahimeh Sasan, to discuss Geico’s approach to benefits for their employees and how these benefits can help attract and retain employees at The Conference Board’s Annual Employee Healthcare Conference. We’ve pulled together the key takeaways from the discussion.
Three Key Takeaways:
Companies that want to recruit and retain top talent must stay current with their benefits
Finding and keeping great talent is a priority for companies but that can sometimes be a challenge. For Geico and Berkshire Hathaway, keeping high-level talent requires “investing in your people” and “listening to your people”. Top talent is not just looking for health, vision, or dental benefits, but a benefit that can impact and improve their future.
Inclusivity is top of mind
Millennials have shown that equality and inclusion within a company and the benefits they offer is of utmost importance. Viewing family-building benefits as more than just a “woman problem” but as a need for your entire organization is crucial. This is why Geico and Berkshire Hathaway are prioritizing building programs and benefits that serve their entire employee base. Their strategy is to partner with companies like Kindbody that are inclusive and innovative. Kindbody’s family-building benefits help those wanting to preserve their fertility, those with an infertility diagnosis, single parents by choice, and LGBTQ+ individuals who want to start or grow their families.
Geico and Berkshire Hathaway’s strategy and plan for family-building benefits
Having a strategy and plan built for your company and your employees’ needs is critical. The goal is to provide employee benefits that best serve your team and reduce the stresses of family-building. According to Orsini, “When you’re stressed at home, you’re stressed at work, and then you’re less productive.” A fertility benefits provider partner like Kindbody that can structure a plan that best suits your workforce is how you have a happy and focused team.
Overall, employers are searching for inclusive benefits for their team, solutions that best serve their employees, and a benefits partner who understands it all. Kindbody has done that for Geico and Berkshire Hathaway with becoming their benefits partner.
