Competitive benefit packages of the 250,000 organizations surveyed included the following:

  • Above-average health insurance coverage
  • Dollar-for-dollar 401(k) match,
  • Free financial planning services
  • Life and disability insurance
  • Tuition reimbursement
  • Commuter benefits
  • Legal benefits
  • Adoption benefits
  • Long-term care insurance
  • Pet Insurance

So as you analyze your annual benefit renewal, keep in mind that the expense may result in happy employees which creates a positive workplace.  Something to make you smile.
