(PRWEB) January 2, 2008
Most employees view the task of shopping for medical and retirement benefits as a nightmare. Research highlights one reason for this attitude: Many employees simply don’t understand basic benefits vocabulary.
Of course, shopping intelligently for benefits is something every employee ought to do. Employee Guide to Becoming a Smart Benefits Shopper is designed to provide employees a roadmap that covers benefits basics and helpful tips, analogies, guidelines and more. It speaks in plain, everyday language to increase benefits know-how and motivate the workforce to think about health and financial well-being.
As the latest edition to the 2004 WorldatWork best-seller, the authors of this book have included new facts and additional information to help employees make the right decisions when it comes to medical and retirement benefits, with a new section on the value of wellness initiatives.
This practical guide raises confidence in employees to ask the right questions and make informed decisions that positively impact their lives and, in turn, improve an employer’s bottom line.
