Navigating the Future: Insurtech’s Role in Shaping Employee Benefits in 2023

The phenomena of the “Great Resignation” and “Silent Departure” are making headlines, prompting employers to innovate in the realm of employee benefits. To enhance recruitment and retention, technological advancements are coming to the forefront, notes Brian O’Connell from InsuranceQuotes. As 2023 presents a tumultuous work environment in the U.S., the spotlight is on stronger employee perks, with insurtech being a central player.

In the wake of remote working, looming recession fears, and the clamor for superior benefits, employers are gravitating towards advanced insurance solutions to address employee concerns. Josh Butler from CompScience underscores the rapid transition towards digital insurance services, with a notable emphasis on telemedicine and electronic claims.
