Employee Benefits

It is important to note the data below represents the percent of employees offered benefits. Therefore, a company with 100 employees will carry much more weight than one with only a few employees. Even though a benefit is offered to employees, not all of them choose to participate in that particular benefit. For example, an employee may be offered health insurance, but may choose not to participate in it.
