Employee Benefits Check-Up

Employee benefits are one of the most complex and costly programs that HR professionals in the U.S. and around the world must deal with. The regulatory environment is extremely complicated and ever-changing; program costs (particularly healthcare) are rising well above inflation in all parts of the world and companies are trying to do more with less. In addition, all too often there is a mismatch between investments made by the employer in benefits and the perceived value of those programs by employees. Successful companies are reviewing their programs regularly to ensure they are getting the most “bang for their buck”.
