Employee Benefits Guide

Selecting the right benefits package can be one of the most important things you do, in the life of your employees, and in the life of your business. An attractive and smart benefits program can be a differentiator for your company, and it can be a highly effective recruiting and retention tool. Companies that get benefits right reap big rewards.

But selecting the right benefits mix is not a cut-and-paste proposition, as there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Your workforce is diverse, it may very well be multigenerational, and so your employees will need and want different options.

You'll need to choose wisely. Benefits can be expensive and once you offer a benefit, it's not easy to rescind the offer.

And be sure to educate your workforce about their health insurance, 401k, FSA, dental insurance and other benefits you offer. Educating employees clears up common confusion around benefits and increases engagement and satisfaction.

In this guide, you'll learn about the four core components of a benefits package, what you need to consider when evaluating each one, and some expert advice on how to think about your company's approach to benefits.
