Aside from helping them attract the most talented individuals to join their company, businesses offer employees a suite of comprehensive benefits to simplify the parts of life that are often confusing and time-consuming. Few things in life fit this bill better than dealing with health insurance.
Whether helping out with co-dependents or explaining the basics of health coverage to entry-level techies, the process can take a lot out of the business and its employees. This is precisely why a handful of local tech companies have decided to simplify everything by offering to cover 100 percent of their employees’ health coverage.
