As companies restructure their compensation packages to improve recruitment and retention rates in a competitive market, many are choosing to include mental health, financial wellness, legal and identity security benefits.
“By partnering with PlanSource, LegalShield and IDShield can support HR teams in enhancing benefits packages and helping employees protect their identity, reputation, legal rights, and finances,” said Mary S. Skaggs, Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships at PPLSI, parent company of LegalShield and IDShield. “The height of COVID-19 highlighted the need for specific legal services and left a lot of legal issues in its wake including landlord/tenant disputes, estate planning needs and consumer credit issues like bankruptcy, contractor disputes and real estate matters. Hiring a lawyer is expensive and not a realistic option for most employees. Our benefits help close the gap and provide employees with access to affordable legal, identity theft protection and online privacy services.”
