    Insurance is not important just for individuals, it also plays a key role in keeping groups together. Gone are the days when employees looked at their employers just for salary, for today, an employer is expected to provide additional incentives to retain talent. One incentive which can go a long way is a good insurance cover, helping employees feel protected, giving them a sense of belonging. ICICI Prudential offers group plans for formal (employer-employee) groups as well as informal (non-employer-employee) groups.

    Investing in these plans is affordable, helping organisations boost productivity and improve overall quality of life of everyone involved.

    ICICI Pru Group Leave Encashment Plan:

There are two options one can choose from, a non-participating endowment plan or a unit linked policy. The policy has a validity of one year, post which an employer can choose to renew it.

    Why do you need ICICI Prudential Group Plans?

    It is important for an organisation to protect the interests of its members. With increased competition, employees can choose to move to a rival organisation if they are unhappy with the benefits they are currently entitled to. ICICI Prudential Group Plans enable employers to provide incentives to employees. These plans invest in the wellbeing of members, making them feel wanted, helping retention.

    Additionally, ICICI Prudential offers group solutions to both, formal and informal groups, ensuring that more entities are covered. With a host of plans on offer, it is possible to meet multiple requirements. An employer can also customise a policy based on current financial needs.

    These plans can be renewed annually, providing employers an opportunity to assess the performance before they choose to renew them. Affordability is another key factor which one can consider, with these schemes offering attractive returns on investment. Not only do these plans provide benefits to employees, they also limit an employer’s burden. A dedicated relationship manager helps plan resources accordingly, ensuring that an employer can concentrate on running the organisation, with the plans looking after additional requirements. An employer can avail gratuity, superannuation, and leave encashment solutions under these plans.

    ICICI Prudential’s attention to customers is another strong point. The company has a high claim settlement ratio of 96.20% (as of 2015-2016). It also had a grievances solved ratio of 99.87%, making it one of the best private insurers in the country.
