How many businesses offer a retirement plan in your city?
posted by Fisher 401(k) November 17, 2016
Providing your employees a 401(k) plan is key to attracting and retaining top talent, making retirement benefits a crucial part of the success of your business. According to the 2016 Annual Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies Survey, 78% say that retirement benefits offered by a prospective employer will be a major factor in their decision to accept an offer. And 54% would likely switch employers for a nearly identical job with a similar employer that offered retirement benefits or better retirement benefits. Consider this:
- It costs 30 to 50 percent of a junior staffer’s salary to replace them
- It costs upwards of 150 percent of a mid-level staffer’s salary to replace them
- It costs 400 percent of a high-level staffer’s salary to replace them1
