As companies seek to improve their employee recruitment and retention efforts, there is no doubt that their employee benefits program plays a role.
In fact, we recently highlighted the direct correlation that a benefits program can have on employee satisfaction levels.
However, it’s important that employers think beyond standard benefit options. While that list may include critical items such as insurance for health and welfare, dental, vision, life and disability, as well as a 401k/retirement plan, there are other items that may also have a positive impact on business.
