Employer Concern About Benefits Cost Increases
June 17, 2010
Over at Employee Benefit News, Lydell C. Bridgeford has done a nice job of summarizing the findings from the latest MetLife Employee Benefits Trends Survey. Key takeaways: for the first time since the survey began eight years ago, employers’ biggest concern is controlling the cost of heath and welfare benefits, coming in ahead of employee retention and increasing employee productivity. Employees are worried about the cost of health care too – and want to know how to get the most out of their benefit plans.
