In a recent LifeHealthPro.com article, Warren Hersch reports that more than 7 in 10 workers desire a greater selection of voluntary benefits offered through their employer.
MetLife released this finding in a summary of results from two polls – an online poll of 408 workers attending the Texas State Fair in October and a nationally-representative survey of 523 workers. Both polls were conducted by GfK Custom Research North America.
The MetLife Texas Benefits Election Poll found that 71 percent of Dallas workers are interested in, and prepared to pay for, a wider array of voluntary benefits. In the national poll, 62 percent of employees expressed this interest.
Brokers who offer non-traditional voluntary benefits, such as employee purchase programs, in their product portfolio allow employers to provide a more robust benefits package.
