Benefits scorecard: Some cuts and high marks
Respondents expressed a high level of satisfaction with their employee benefits in the four categories we surveyed: health, dental, vacation and flex-time. A little more than 60% rated their health benefits as good, very good or excellent.
The majority of respondents (67.9%) said their benefits packages didn’t change compared to last year; 10% cited improved benefits while 19.6% saw them reduced -- not a very encouraging number but a definite improvement vs. the 30% who fell into that category last year.
