[aa_subtitle_display]Through our blog and company, you’ve learned about the benefits of Direct Primary Care (DPC) as well as how it differs from a more traditional medical insurance model.
But what you probably haven’t realized is that offering your employees this medical care can help you to attract younger talent to work with your business. In this article, we explore how this is so and why it is just another reason to consider offering DPC as a part of your employee benefit package.
How DPC Can Help Your Company Attract Young Talent
The Direct Primary Care health care option allows your employees the convenience that the younger generation thrives on. While there are 50 million Millennials between the ages of 18 and 29 – making this the biggest generation in U.S. history – they are a group that seeks all things convenient.
After all, we are talking about a group that has had the most cutting edge technology at their fingertips for almost as long as they can remember. This means that they are bound to love DPC as it makes receiving care from a physician more convenient than it is in the more traditional model.
DPC doctors are more readily available for appointments with their patients, making it easier and quicker to get in and out of the office. For those who are always on the go, this is a major plus.
They love technology
Technology plays a huge life in the lives of Millennials. 24% of Millennials polled by Salesforce said that their use of technology sets them apart from other generations and nearly half of people in a survey aged 23 – 30 said they’d rather lose their sense of smell than their phone.
Given these stats, having a doctor that patients can email or even text does a lot to strike their fancy. This is bound to make this age group feel more catered to and they’ll love having this perk offered to them by their employer.
They value connections
Although Millennials are known as being independent in solving their own problems, they also value having interactions and connections with other people. This age group is known to be social, meaning that they enjoy forming relationships with those around them.
With that being said, why would that be any different with their doctors? DPC offers patients close doctor-patient relationships. This is not the case in a more traditional practice, so this is something that your younger talent is sure to love about this benefit.
Attracting younger talent that you can retain in the long run at your business is important to your development and growth as a company. Because of that, it’s important to consider offering the most cutting-edge and attractive benefits out there. To learn more about DPC, call us today!
