Flexible benefits and Lifestyle Spending Accounts (LSAs) are becoming increasingly popular in 2023.

Employees are seeking the flexibility to choose and use benefits that are meaningful to them (from financial wellness, mental health, tuition reimbursement to family planning). Meanwhile, employers are looking to balance providing personalized support at scale that adds value and is cost-effective. Watch this on-demand webinar to learn how to build a successful flexible benefits program.

The three key ways that you can supercharge benefits on a budget with LSAs are to:

  • Align with stakeholders/ leaders on your benefit goals early and often to gain support and approval.
  • Give employees the power of choice with a broad lifestyle spending account.
