The article, “How best-in-class employers control health care costs” by KATIE KUEHNER-HEBERT states,

“Best-in-class large and mid-sized employers are able to more effectively control their health care costs and bettermanage HR functions, as measured by lower turnover and higher employee satisfaction, according to two Gallagher Best-in-Class Benchmarking Analysis reports, based on employer responses to Gallagher’s 2017 Benefits Strategy & Benchmarking Survey.

Best-in-class large employers with 1,000 or more full-time employees achieved at least one of the following metrics for premium cost increases in the past three years: 3.9 percent or less for the last three years; 0.9 percent or less for two of those years; or 0.9 percent or less for one year plus 3.9 percent or less for another year.

One way they achieve this is by spending less — 62 percent best-in-class large employers spend under $10,000 on employer-paid benefits per eligible employee, compared to 42 percent of other large employers. To make sure eligible workers are enrolled in the appropriate plans, 68 percent of the best-in-class perform audits, compared to 47 percent of their peers. In addition, they have a greater tendency to self-administer maternity leave (83 percent vs. 71 percent).

“While employers may contain costs by using these spending approaches, they risk possible consequences from shifting more financial responsibility to employees — including impacting employee health and talent recruiting and retention,” the authors write. “For this reason, best-in-class employers for human resource management and the best of the best tend to avoid these tactics.”
