White Papers:
The pursuit of the right talent continues to be highly competitive and, according to the latest research from PayScale, that pursuit is shaping compensation programs and strategies. In fact, PayScale’s 2017 Compensation Best Practices Report (CBPR) reveals a shift in strategy, as well as a gap between the perceptions of employees and employers with regard to pay.
As national leaders debate ways to tackle health care troubles, employers may need to get creative in helping employees afford the health care they need. One way they can do that is by offering supplemental benefits.
The freelance economy continues to grow, and from many indications, workers and companies each enjoy the benefits. Before you jump on the bandwagon and hire a contract workforce, though, it’s a good idea to take a step back and be sure you understand exactly who is an employee versus who is a contractor. As evidenced by 2017 lawsuits, misclassification can be costly.
In January 2017, Wells Fargo Insurance Services (WFIS) made their employee benefits predictions for the year in their 2017 Employee Benefits Outlook. Like the prognostications of many others, the survey report reveals a sense of uncertainty about the future. Combined with trends in health and technology, a new Administration in the White House makes the future hard to predict. However, several trends are continuing from those covered in WFIS’ 2016 Outlook.
