How Companies Can Give Back to Their Educators
It's no secret that teachers have one of the most demanding jobs out there. They are constantly required to give their time, energy, and attention to their students – often at the expense of their personal lives. In order to show our appreciation for everything they do, administrators must find ways to give back to teachers. Here are three suggestions about how companies can support teachers.
Ways to Support Teachers
1. Offer flexibility in scheduling and curriculum planning
One way to show teachers that you value their time and expertise is by giving them more autonomy when it comes to scheduling and curriculum planning. Where possible, let them choose what days and times they have class, as well as what material they cover. This will give them a greater sense of ownership over their work, and also allow them to tailor the class to their students' needs in a way that best suits their teaching style.
2. Invest in professional development opportunities
Another way companies can support teachers is by investing in their professional development. Send them to conferences, pay for them to take classes online or at a local institution, or subscribe them to educational journals. Not only will this help them stay up-to-date on the latest pedagogical methods, but it will also show them that you are willing to invest in their growth as educators.
3. Provide group insurance benefits
Teachers often spend their own money on supplies for their classrooms, so why not provide them with some financial assistance? One way to do this is by offering group life insurance benefits, such as health, dental, life, and disability insurance. This will help offset some of the costs that teachers incur as a result of their job and show them that you are committed to protecting their wellbeing.
At InLife, we have a range of group life insurance plans that can be customized to cover any type of benefits your company needs. We work with companies of all sizes in all industries, so you're guaranteed to find a plan that meets your specific requirements and budget constraints.
InLife has crafted a special group insurance plan to help you give your teachers the security they need. The Teachers Group Plan not only offers life, accident, and disability insurance benefits for education professionals but also provides coverage in the event of hospitalization.
The Teachers Group Plan includes the following features:
• Accidental death and disability benefits
• Hospitalization benefits including room and board, professional fees, and surgical procedures
• Surgical benefits
• All companies in this group plan are combined together. If there is a surplus after claims and expenses within the pool at the end of the year, InLife may give a part of it to the businesses
Companies don't need to do grand gestures to support teachers and education – sometimes the small things make the biggest impact. By offering flexibility in scheduling and curriculum planning, investing in professional development opportunities, and providing group insurance benefits, you can let your teachers know that you value them and their hard work.
