Buck’s third biennial employee Wellbeing and Voluntary Benefits Survey explores employee wellbeing and how U.S. employers rate the financial, social, physical, and mental health of their workforce. The report also offers insight into how organizations are using voluntary benefits to support employee wellbeing, enhance benefit programs, and attract and retain talent.
For the first time, the research was supplemented with a sample of employees working for large U.S. employers, so it is possible to compare the views of the employee — the ultimate “consumer” of wellbeing and benefit programs — with HR decision-makers.
