- An examination of the benefits small business owners are required to offer
- A look at the benefits small businesses choose to offer in order to attract and retain employees
For small and growing businesses, recruiting and retaining top-quality employees goes beyond compensation. Employers are able to offer benefits that employees can’t access on their own, and so benefits provide value for employees at a relatively low cost to companies. Many times, the benefits package a small business offers is a deciding factor for prospective job candidates. The vast majority of job seekers look for a quality benefits package, in addition to their paycheck. Vacation, health insurance, long-term disability coverage, tuition reimbursement, and retirement savings plans are just a few of the many benefits employers may choose to offer its employees. But what benefits, required by state, federal, or local statute, must a company provide its workers? This information is particularly important for small businesses, which have to allocate benefit dollars carefully while complying with relevant laws. In this course, we will examine the benefits small business owners are required to offer, as well as the ones many choose to offer in order to attract and retain employees.
