Employees appreciate saving time and money when obtaining voluntary benefits through their employer -nearly two-thirds (61%) report that they value these products as a way to meet personal needs. Voluntary benefits also can help employers retain talent, control costs and improve employee productivity. A voluntary group legal plan can help meet these objectives and provide assistance to time-challenged employees who are facing greater personal difficulties tied to the sluggish economy. The extent of these difficulties is revealed in a recent study conducted by Harris Interactive. It shows the toll that your employees' personal legal matters - such as debt problems, real estate matters, traffic tickets, or family situations like adoption and divorce - are having on employee workplace productivity.
