Data Breach Response
After the Equifax breach, identity theft protection benefits are more popular than ever - with employees and employers alike. Employees, especially those whose finances were affected by the breach, appreciate the added security, and many employers see the benefits as an added level of protection for their organization.
World Mental Health Day
October 10th is World Mental Health Day. Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide, and around 16% of disability claims can be traced back to mental health issues. Benefits play a major role in mental health for employees, and many employers are beginning to take preventative action to aid employees' mental health.
