Different Generations in the Workforce

Today’s workforce is composed of five distinct generations. From the Silent Generation to Gen Z, each generation has its own lifestyle. Each varying lifestyle influences their wants and needs for health care coverage.

As a benefits leader for your business, you may face the challenge of designing a health insurance plan that satisfies all your employees, regardless of the age group. Let’s explore examples of the different expectations that each generation has for their health care and how you can meet them.

  • Sanford Health Plan is a great choice for Baby Boomers, who were born between 1946 and 1964. It’s a generation that appreciates having personal relationships with their health care providers. Our health insurance coverage covers both preventative care and chronic care. Our integrated health care system makes it easy for you to connect with your providers and get the care you need.
  • If you are part of Generation X, born between 1964 and 1980, you probably care about work-life balance. Sanford Health Plan has a range of wellness benefits that can help you achieve well-being in every aspect of your life. As a member of Sanford Health Plan, you will receive our monthly Wellness@Work newsletter. The newsletter is packed with useful tips and resources for staying healthy and happy while you work.
