Nationwide News: New product helps farmers provide benefits to their employees

Buckeye Farm News

With the size and complexity of many farms today, it’s common for farmers to also be bosses. Having a few employees to help get the job done is part of the business of farming.

For farmers, like any other employer, rewarding and recruiting good employees is also a challenge. One way to be an attractive employer is to provide benefits, which can bring your employees some much-needed protection and help set you apart as an employer.

Fortunately, Nationwide has a new program called benefits that can help you offer your employees a competitive benefits package that supplements their regular health insurance program.

For Ohio Farm Bureau members, this new program saves members both time and money. For smaller companies considering offering benefits for the first time, or for those looking for alternatives to high insurance premiums, benefits is designed to be simple, affordable and easy to purchase.

Nationwide is providing Ohio Farm Bureau member employers access to valuable coverage such as:

•    Dental

•    Vision

•    Short term disability

•    Group life

•    Critical illness

If you are an employer and a member of Ohio Farm Bureau, you can receive an exclusive discount, whether you buy any of the products separately or packaged in any combination.

Employers understand the value in attracting and retaining talented employees by offering them benefits, but may not have the time or money to provide a traditional benefits program. To save time, Nationwide has made it easy for employers to see how affordable benefitsSM can be by completing a no-obligation quote online in as little as five minutes.

Members need a code to receive the discount. Log in to the website, then visit the Nationwide Employee Benefits page to get the log in code.
