cohealth tweet chat: metlife’s 9th annual study of employee benefits trends (july 20 at noon ET)

July 12, 2011

in cohealth

metlife’s annual study of employee benefits trends offers employers a thoughtful exploration of the employee benefits landscape. with this, their ninth study, they highlight increased blindness on employers’ behalf when it comes to:

  • satisfaction and loyalty
  • the need for greater financial education
  • generational differences and priorities in benefits design
  • employee interest in social media tools

tweet chat agenda

we’ll explore the study and these specific areas during our july cohealth chat with metlife’s dr. ronald leopold, vice president, U.S. business. we’ll ask:

Q1: you’ve been doing this study for nine years. where are we making headway? where aren’t we?
Q2: the link between benefits and retention keeps coming up in your studies. how can employers strengthen this link?
Q3: customizing benefits for different generations is a key message. where should an employer begin?
Q4: financial well-being is really spotlighted in this study. what are employers missing here? how can they do better?
Q5: employers still don’t seem to be buying social media tools for benefits communication. what surprised you here? what are effective arguments to get employers launched?
Q6: what do you project for 2014 with health care reform?


we recommend downloading and reading the report. you can also read my comments on the report here.
