Voluntary Benefits for the Auto Repair Industry

Attracting and retaining skilled technicians is a major challenge in the auto repair industry, made even more difficult by the high cost of traditional health insurance.

Many auto repair shops find it challenging to offer such benefits due to these costs. However, voluntary benefits present an affordable alternative.

These benefits not only enhance recruitment and retention efforts but also improve your team’s wellbeing without adversely affecting your bottom line.

Why Offer Voluntary Benefits?

Voluntary benefits are optional, employee-paid benefits that complement the existing employer-sponsored benefits packages. This arrangement allows you to provide additional benefits without incurring significant company costs.

Employees can choose the coverage that best suits their needs, giving them a personalized benefits package that adds to their job satisfaction and loyalty.

Key Voluntary Benefits to Consider:

  1. Life Insurance: Offering life insurance demonstrates that you value your employees’ contributions and care about their family’s wellbeing. This benefit provides significant peace of mind for your team, knowing their loved ones will be taken care of financially in case of the unexpected.
  2. Short-Term Disability Insurance: Given the physical demands of auto repair work, short-term disability insurance is important. It ensures that if an employee is temporarily unable to work due to an injury, they will still receive a portion of their income, helping them manage financial obligations during recovery.
  3. Accident Insurance: Accident insurance is an excellent supplement to workers’ compensation, covering additional expenses that occur due to accidental injuries. This might include non-covered medical treatments or other related costs, providing an extra layer of financial protection.


Voluntary benefits are not only a cost-effective way to enrich your benefits offerings, they are also an investment in the wellbeing and stability of your employees.

By allowing your technicians to customize their benefits, you demonstrate your commitment to their personal and professional lives.
