The International Foundation research team takes trending industry topics
and provides in-depth coverage of employer responses through survey
reports (that’s where the mind reading comes into play). Reports include
difficult-to-find details and benchmarking tactics to help employers address
the challenging benefits environment.
Over the last couple months, the talented Foundation research team asked
members about paid leave in the workplace, flexible work arrangements,
and transportation benefits and incentives.
Paid Leave in the Workplace took a deep dive into paid leave policies at
corporate and public organizations. Here’s a fun fact from the report:
Nearly one-third of surveyed employers offer vacation time donation.
Flexible Work Arrangements: 2017 Survey Results revealed that 94% of U.S.
organizations offer some type of flexible work arrangement. And employers
reported the most common ways their employees travel to the workplace
in Transportation Benefits and Incentives: 2017 Survey Results.
Access to survey reports is a fantastic member benefit you don’t want to
miss out on. After all, you can’t save the benefits world alone! To view a
