Employer benefits used to be straightforward — provide health care, dental care and a retirement plan and you were pretty much done. But today if you want strong employee retention and the ability to recruit great people, you need to keep up with the times.

I wouldn’t have ever thought Telemedicine would be a desired employee benefit. Thank you for sharing, I will take that back to my HR team for consideration!

My current & former employers both offer telemedicine, but not because employees are asking for it, rather TPTB see it as a money saving tool. According to HR, the take-up rate has been in the low single digits even after a couple years of promotion.
