OneDigital Senior Benefits Executive Elsa Glorioso Featured in Employee Benefit News

At OneDigital, we understand that the true measure of a benefits program lies not only in its ability to provide financial support but also in its capacity to offer comfort and understanding during life’s most challenging moments.

The recent article in Employee Benefit News by Elsa Glorioso, OneDigital Senior Benefits Executive, Mid Atlantic, “How benefits can offer an empathetic approach to processing death,” resonates deeply with our mission. Glorioso, drawing on her dual expertise as an oncology nurse and benefits consultant, advocates for a benefits approach that encompasses the full spectrum of an employee’s needs during times of loss.

  • Proactive Advocacy: As fierce advocates for our clients and their employees, OneDigital champions the need for benefits that truly reflect the rising cost of living and the financial realities of end-of-life care. We are committed to actively seeking better disability payouts and financial structures, ensuring that our clients’ employees are supported both in life and in times of grief.
  • Comprehensive Support: Glorioso’s article highlights the booming business of end-of-life care and the financial burdens it imposes on families. At OneDigital, we believe in mitigating these challenges by providing a comprehensive benefits package that addresses not just the financial aspects but also the emotional and practical needs of those facing loss.
  • Empathetic Leadership: We lead with empathy, recognizing that each individual’s journey through grief is personal and unique. By advocating for resources such as counseling services and support groups, we demonstrate our commitment to supporting employees through the full arc of their experiences, from hire to the end.

Glorioso stated in the article:

While we can't be present or involved for everyone, it is important to view death as something that needs to be dealt with as a benefit item. It goes further than life insurance and a simple pay out, but what are we doing to help our clients assist their employees in having a dignified ending?
