Health care is a critical part of every one of our lives — and can be a costly one, too. While many companies choose to shrink their benefits packages during belt-tightening periods, some are committed to providing health care to their employees at any cost. For example, ZocDoc, a health care information technology company, practices what it preaches by covering all employee premiums.
“We believe that access to health care is the one big problem we are trying to solve in America … and we really should do our part,” says Oliver Kharraz, ZocDoc’s CEO. Companies like this understand that having happy, healthy employees is key to having a productive, cohesive workforce.
