In conjunction with the SHRM 2017 Annual Conference and Exposition, SHRM released their 2017 Employee Benefits report (you can download the report here).  There’s lots of interesting information and data; one key finding is that organizations that added to their benefits offerings were most likely to do so in the wellness and health-related benefits areas.

Also, over the past four years, spousal and domestic partner benefits have increased, but may now be leveling off. The new data show that:

  • 95% of organizations provide health care coverage for same-sex spouses
  • 85% provide coverage for same-sex spouses
  • Just over 50% provide coverage for domestic partners, regardless of whether they are the same or opposite-sex

Also interesting to me was the finding that health care benefits for part-time employees has increased, with one-third of organizations now offering coverage (compared with 27% in 2014).

Telecommuting, leave time, and even standing desks; you can find information about everything under the sun. Check it out; this report continues to be a great resource for HR and benefit professionals.
