Benefits and the Organization
Based on one of this week’s articles, “Filling in Around the Edges,” you’ve learned about the wide variety of potential employer-sponsored benefits found within today’s organizations. For this week’s application, think of an organization with which you are familiar. What do you believe this organization’s ideal benefits portfolio would be in order to optimize employee recruitment and retention.
In a 1-page submission, briefly describe the organization, and then design the voluntary, supplemental, and other benefits that you believe to be the best fit for this organization based on your understanding of its needs and financial abilities. In your submission, be sure to highlight at least two benefits that you believe would be optimal for this organization, as well as two benefits that you believe would be unsuitable, and explain your reasoning.
