Employees are your organization’s most important asset - so how do you go about attracting the right individuals and then RETAINING THEM by ensuring that they are satisfied with their work and benefits package?

  • New and unique job perks to keep employees happy
  • Work/Family balance (i.e. paid family, paternity, and maternity leave), paid continued education, office pets, ride sharing, PTO/sick leave bank policies
  • Wellness programs, health risk assessments, health coaching, healthy food & drink snacks offered from the employer, ergonomic office supplies, providing company bikes and other exercise opportunities
  • Life and disability insurance benefits
  • Voluntary benefits
  • Section 125 (flex) and Section 132 (transportation) plans
  • Employee assistance programs
  • Retirement planning using socially responsible investing with minimal fees.
