Why Did We Create this Benefits & Workplace Survey?
We started this survey in 2001 after recognizing the marketplace was void of useful employee benefit and HR data for employers to act upon. The survey has grown substantially over the years, both in participation and data, so that now Vermont employers can make informed choices in their approach to HR and benefit strategy and, ultimately, how to best attract and retain employees while keeping costs in line.
How We Rose to the Challenge
Providing data is one thing, but offering the insights into the data is what our firm does best. Since the survey’s inception we have not only offered the survey results, but provide an inside look into the data to identify trends, gaps and changes in the marketplace. Our firm regularly speaks on the survey data in different venues across the State of Vermont. For more information on detailed insights of this year’s results, please contact Michael Kilfoyle in the box to the right.
Benefits to HR Professionals
As culture keepers, HR professionals are constantly striving to create the best working environments for the employees of their organizations. Part of this is to make sure their workplace practices and the benefits they offer to employees are competitive so that they are an employer of choice. By using the results of the VT Employee Benefits Survey, HR professionals can know where their organization stands compared to their peers and the marketplace. In doing so, they can find and keep the talent that will help their organization thrive.
