Recruit and retain talent: report shows that Accolade adds value for employers and health plans

March 22, 2022 | 3 min read

As employers, we’ve all heard of The Great Resignation and have probably felt it within our own companies. We're now in a period that’s being called “The Great Retention.” Employers are looking for new ways to keep their top talent — and people want more than ping pong tables and free snacks.   

So, what do they want? A 2021 study by Mercer & Marsh Benefits shows they want better healthcare. Healthcare-related items were ranked in the top 15 valuable services and solutions that an employer can offer, including access to virtual care, help finding the right doctor and having a service that helps secure and pay for a second medical opinion.   

Notably, the study found that “Employees with the most varied well-being resources are 35 percentage points less likely to move elsewhere, 27 points more confident they can get the healthcare they need and 11 points more energized than those offered no resources.”  

Research by Savanta shows Accolade’s Personalized Healthcare services add value   

Savanta conducted a survey on behalf of Accolade in September and October of 2021 to determine if Accolade’s Personalized Healthcare services, including advocacy, navigation and care delivery, improve employees’ experience and perception of both their health plan and employer. [1] 

The results demonstrate that Accolade’s personal, data-driven and value-based approach is the one healthcare service that people, and their families find indispensable. Most Accolade members feel that Accolade has made their experience with healthcare easier (93%) and that it has improved their healthcare benefit experience (92%).
