48.9% Average Worker Turnover for Part-Time Workers
MyHRConcierge (MHRC) has launched The Grocers Employee Turnover Relief Program, a new package of services for independent grocers facing escalating labor and benefits costs. Inspiration for the new service came from the nearly 50 percent average part-timer worker turnover rate reported in the 2017 Independent Grocers Financial Survey.
Worker Turnover & Other Labor Woes
Higher worker turnover is one reason independents’ labor and benefits costs continue to rise, according to the study. “The independent grocers we work with are looking for easy, affordable ways to get ahead of this worker turnover challenge. This new program also helps them with worker recruiting, absenteeism and productivity challenges,” notes Chris Cooley, MyHRConcierge Co-founder.
Designed for Grocers & Their Workers
Designed to add value for both grocers and their workers, The Grocers Employee Turnover Relief program bundles 3 services:
- FastCare Telehealth Benefit
- Anonymous Worker Tip Line
- Manager’s HR Helpline.
“We wanted to help grocers empower their workers at home and at work,” notes Cooley. “For example, the FastCare Telehealth Benefit is included in this program. It gives grocers a valuable perk they can offer their workers who don’t have or can’t afford traditional health insurance for their families. It gives grocers a leg up when competing for workers.”
52% of Workers Preferred This Benefit Vs a Raise
52% of workers said they prefer a medical care benefit instead of a 5% raise, according to The Employee Turnover Reduction Study sponsored by PSC Technology. Nearly 1900 restaurant workers participated in the study. Here’s how the medical care benefit was described to them.
Unlimited free access to physicians and specialists for yourself and your dependents by phone or video.
MyHRConcierge has partnered with PSC Healthcare to deliver the FastCare Telehealth Benefit.
“We chose PSC because they’ve built their telehealth benefit based on what workers and small to medium business owners really want,” notes Cooley. “PSC’s philosophy about serving customers matches ours.”
