What is the best way to attract and retain high-caliber talent? Having an excellent team makes a crucial difference to the success of your business. By offering essential medical coverage as a key employee benefit, organizations promote a sense of belonging among their talents and lift morale in the workplace. Now Health Hong Kong helps local and global enterprises provide their Hong Kong-based staff the necessary health care coverage with tailor-made group health insurance plans that have their medical needs and those of their dependents in mind. With the right group health insurance, employees are motivated and encouraged to maintain their competitive edge.
Employee Health is an Asset
Known as a global financial hub, Hong Kong is home to a large number of multinational companies in the finance industry such as banks, investment organizations, wealth management, and insurance among others. Due to its strategic location in East Asia, Hong Kong's shipping industry is also one of the biggest contributors to its economy. These, along with the education, retail and information technology sectors, attract a high number of expatriates to create a diverse and highly competitive workforce.
The work culture in Hong Kong is described as fast-paced and long hours during working days are not uncommon. Most private companies, both local and international, provide a host of benefits to their employees in compliance with the labor laws of Hong Kong. These may include accident or life insurance as well as medical insurance to their employees as part of their long-term employee benefits. These are usually obtained from local health insurers in Hong Kong. Depending on your organization or your expatriate benefits package, coverage for employees' medical insurance plans may be geographically limited to Hong Kong, especially if these are provided by local insurance companies.
Safeguarding Employees' Health and Wellness
Now Health Hong Kong's selection of group medical plans is designed to deliver optimum benefits to employees while keeping premiums affordable for employers and business owners by offering coverage at different price points.
