53% Percent of participants are likely to leave their job for one with better benefits
In a weak economy, many employees may take whatever job they can get. But research confirms that there are things employers can do to attract and retain good talent: Good benefits. The study reports that 53% of respondents said they would likely leave their job if a nearly identical job with better retirement benefits were available. Although we assume that means decent health care and vacation time, we hope it also means a decent employer match to incentive employees to save more and develop more realistic perspectives on retirement.
