The 2021 Employee Benefits Survey is Now Closed!

Since 2001, Hickok & Boardman HR Intelligence has conducted an annual survey of Vermont area employers, capturing their thoughts and actions as they respond to the ever-changing benefits marketplace. With major health care reform changes occurring, it is more important than ever to get a baseline for health care costs and benefits. Individual survey responses are strictly confidential; only aggregate data is reported. All participants who submitted a completed survey will receive a complimentary copy of the results (a $300 value), published later this year.

If you missed this year's survey, but would like to purchase a copy of the results, or be added to the distribution list for next year's survey, please email Stacey Sharp.
