The Basics of Employee Purchasing Programs
An employee purchasing program is a voluntary benefit option that allows your employees to buy products and services and pay over time interest-free, generally through payroll deductions. Financial stress is the number one issue facing employees today, and stress impacts productivity. An employee purchasing program gives employees a greater degree of financial flexibility and as such can be considered a way to increase employee wellness.
A good employee purchasing program will provide access to brand-name products including:
- Fitness equipment
- Furniture and appliances
- Baby products
