Managing Escalating Employee Health Care Costs

Share Article

Because every organization is so different, there is no one-size-fits-all formula to control employee health care costs. A host of options to consider exists in benefit plan design, and the latest WorldatWork publication, Managing Employee Health Care Costs: A Collection of Articles from WorldatWork, puts all these options into one source.

PRWEB) October 11, 2007 -- It’s no surprise that many organizations are finding it difficult to provide competitive and affordable employee benefit plans to attract and retain top talent. But the trend toward rising costs continues, with the National Coalition on Health Care finding the average health care cost per employee per year was $6,700, or $2 trillion nationally. This figure is expected to rise to $4 trillion by 2015.

Because every organization is so different, there is no one-size-fits-all formula to control employee health care costs.
