National Employee Benefits Day to Be Celebrated on April 2, 2012

Day Will Have Special Focus on Retirement Security and Value-Based Health Care

 

Brookfield, Wisconsin—The International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans is once again leading the celebrations for the annual National Employee Benefits Day. Celebrated each year on April 2, the day recognizes trustees, administrators, corporate benefits practitioners and professional advisors for their hard work and dedication in providing quality employee benefits.

 

Employers are encouraged to involve their employees in the celebration by reviewing the benefits offered by their organization to increase awareness and understanding.

 

This year, National Employee Benefits Day is focusing on the International Foundation's two newest initiatives: retirement security and value-based health care. On April 2, visitors to the National Employee Benefits Day website, www.ifebp.org/benefitsday, will be able to access special Benefits Day features, including an interactive retirement assessment tool, budgeting worksheet and value-based health care podcast.

 

The website has numerous resources for helping employers learn more about retirement security and value-based health care, including government resources, recent news and survey updates and information that can be shared with employees. The site also has suggestions on how to celebrate and offers Benefits Day premium items, including a National Employee Benefits Day mug and T-shirts.

 

National Employee Benefits Day was created in 2004 by the International Foundation, and is celebrated annually each April in the United States and Canada.
