With an aging population, the cost of healthcare and retirement are a big concern for employees. Workers caring for family medical needs, while also saving for retirement, and money is tight. An employee benefits plan can provide advantages to both employer and employee.
According to a recent study, 42% of companies surveyed with 2 to 100+ employees did not offer health benefits to their employees, and fewer offered a retirement program, such as profit-sharing (25%), group RRSP (20%) or employee pension (15%). Businesses trying to grow and retain talent must invest in a long-term employee policy.
