Employers' Top Worry is Health Costs

In a recent ADP survey of 750 mid-sized U.S. companies, executives were asked what their top economic and business concerns were.  The main concerns were:

  1. Health Costs - 69 percent are concerned with the cost of health coverage and other benefits
  2. Health Care Reform - 54 percent are concerned with health care reform legislation
  3. Government Regulations - 51 percent are concerned with the level and volume of government regulations

Many are fearful that these costs and regulations will interrupt what has been a fairly rosy economic picture over the past two years.  Many are doubtful that the economy’s momentum can be maintained.  Finding ways to address these concerns will be a main priority in the coming year.
