I am a huge fan of the MetLife studies. The trends are always interesting, but never more meaningful than they are right now. They aren't more meaningful because of anything specific, but, rather, because of the role benefits programs will take on both as a result of healthcare reform as well as the challenges employers will face as they start to emerge from the recession.

The biggest mistakes anyone could make would be to: 1. use their old definition of what makes up benefit programs, 2. to try and communicate with employees using the same old methods, and 3. underestimate the impact the right program can have on their organization.


It is indeed a critical time in the benefit field. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and perspective - glad to hear that you are also a big fan of the MetLife studies.
