To keep their workforce happy and healthy and to retain talent, employers must offer benefits that are tailored to meet specific employee needs and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. One benefit that employers are beginning to understand the value and importance of is fertility care. According to the CDC, one in eight couples have trouble getting pregnant, making infertility more widespread than cancer or diabetes. Weather it’s the inability to get pregnant or the desire to delay parenthood and not being able to find the ways and means to do so, infertility coupled with the lack of proper support and guidance toward reproductive health can cause severe anxiety and stress, affect an individual’s emotional and mental health, and reduce productivity. How can employers come forward and help those dealing with fertility issues? What cost-effective options are available?
