In what ways is the field of employee benefits changing?
“Increased legislation in this field has not yet resulted in a significant shift away from traditional employee benefits. We anticipate that employers and providers will proactively pursue innovative ways of offering and providing desired benefits. Wellness incentive programs, high deductible plans/HSAs, Roth accounts and flexible scheduling offer popular, cost-effective options. Despite the changing times, the goal of providing quality employee benefits to attract and retain the right type of talent will not change.”
