The Future of Benefits

The workforce and workplace are experiencing seismic shifts, with remote and hybrid work forcing employers to adapt to changing employee expectations and the always-on nature of the digital office.

In the VSP Global Innovation Center’s (GIC) latest Futurist Report, The Future of Benefits, we spotlight how these rapidly evolving workforce shifts - coupled with macro trends such as a growing menu of employer-sponsored offerings and the proliferation of gamified engagement – have ushered in the emergence of new benefits segments, accelerating a transition to holistic benefits packages with individualized solutions that address an employees’ unique role, place, and needs. 

Here are the five transformative trends shaping the future of benefits:

  1. Hybrid work creates an opening for new lifestyle benefits
  2. New stage-of-life benefits meet workers’ needs
  3. Focus on access helps employees navigate an expanded benefits menu
  4. Benefits come home
  5. Gamification makes benefits stick
