1. Voluntary benefits have arrived and are here to stay
Voluntary benefits have been giving companies a much-needed boost to their total rewards packages. They have become an asset to employers and a welcome choice for employees. Eastbridge Consulting Groups recently-released study, MarketVision The Employer Viewpoint after PPACA, reports that 77% of employers with 10 or more employees now offer at least one voluntary product. In 2013, the percentage of employers offering voluntary benefits will rise, and those already offering voluntary benefits will add more options to their employee benefits packages.
