HR Dive: Mental health, telehealth benefits are post-pandemic priorities

An annual benefits survey by the Society for Human Resource Management found that mental health and telemedicine or telehealth services are among the most important benefits employers feel they can offer employees in 2022. Of the survey’s 3,129 responses, 93 percent of respondents said they offered telemedicine or telehealth, a 20 percent jump from 2019 when the category was last recorded. The strong prevalence of these benefits indicates they are likely to be permanent fixtures following the COVID-19 pandemic.
