These Sectors Offer Highest Level of Benefits

Employers in the utilities, mining, and pharmaceutical-manufacturing sectors offer high levels of employee benefits overall, but they still trail the government, education, and nonprofit sectors in providing benefits, according to a new study from Mercer Human Resource Consulting.

The study looked at more than 890 US employers, finding that benefit levels at government employers are 26 percent higher than the median benefit levels of employers across all industries. Benefit levels in education were 18 percent higher and 15 percent higher in large nonprofit organizations.
