Why Subsidise Health Insurance?


The New Zealand workplace is under pressure with tighter budgets, increased workloads and stringent headcount approval processes. The drive to improve productivity is continuous. At the same time, many businesses are struggling to attract and retain talented staff due to competition driven by low unemployment and a growing economy.

That’s the reality facing many businesses today. Whether they are large corporates or smaller family run businesses, these pressures exist. Some businesses are fronting up to these challenges and realise that a targeted investment in the health and wellbeing of their staff is a vital part of the solution.

A subsidised health insurance scheme arranged through UniMed, is a great place to start. It can assist businesses in improving productivity and retaining top talent.

Improved Productivity

Minimising Downtime

Employees can access necessary health treatment when they need it, resulting in  fewer sick days. They face less financial pressure. They can often schedule treatment around their workload, minimising disruption.

Attract top talent

An attractive employee benefit

Subsidised health insurance is highly valued by staff. After base salary, the top three staff benefits offered by employers are flexible working arrangements (62%) bonuses (56.1%) and subsidised health insurance (39.2%)
