Why invest in group benefits?
By providing group benefits for your employees, you can better attract and retain top talentOpens in a new window, provide insurance at a reduced cost and help improve morale.
You can increase productivity in your workplace by providing financial security to your plan members. In fact, a study by Canada Life Group Insurance showed that 25% of respondents believe that helpful employee benefits and perks would have the biggest positive impact on their work productivity.
Your premium may also be tax-deductible as a business expense. We offer plans specifically tailored to small businesses, with competitive pricing, leading products and services, and online access to GroupNetTM for Plan Members and GroupNet for Plan Administration.
