Employee benefits almost as important as their salary

According to the 2011 Mercer Workplace Survey, health benefits play an increasingly pivotal role in the employer-employee relationship. 91% of employees participating in the survey agreed that getting health benefits through work is just as important as getting a salary. Almost as many (76%) say that benefits make them feel appreciated by their company.

An increased emphasis on benefits, especially when managed by a payroll service provider, can be a differentiating strategy, leading employees toward more personal accountability and greater overall satisfaction.
