ObamaCare Good For Business

imagesPosted By Rick Dacri, June 12, 2013

Many of the pundits are warning that companies will be laying off workers or reducing work hours to skirt the regulations that require them to provide health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. One company has said “nonsense” and is actually allowing part-time employees to increase their hours so that they can become eligible for the insurance, thus increasing the number of employees who will be receiving health insurance at their company. The Cumberland Gulf Group (Cumberland Farms Convenience Stores) believes that by taking care of their employees, they will see improvements in employee engagement, retention and customer service, all resulting in increased sales and profits. Rather than focusing on short-term savings by eliminating health insurance, they’re betting on their employees and the long-term health of their company by adding employees to the insurance rolls.

The Cumberland Gulf Group has made employee satisfaction a corporate priority and knows that expanding benefit coverage to more of their employees is one way to achieve this. They realize that customer satisfaction requires happy, engaged employees.

Cumberland is taking the big picture approach. It’s a smart move; it’s strategic; and it makes good business sense. Employees are not going to stick around a company that neither invests in them nor provides them affordable health insurance.

What do you think of Cumberland’s decision?  Comment below.

    It’s refreshing to see a business publicly support its employees! I sure wish they had stores in Utah – I’d be a loyal customer.
