When it comes to benefits, employees want them now as opposed over the long term.

In the Mercer Making Smart Benefit Choices survey of 10,400 employees in 10 worldwide markets found employees tend to select benefits that provide instant gratification over long-term value.

Symetra named John R. Rafferty vice president of Marketing for the company’s Retirement Division. Rafferty comes to Symetra from American General Life Insurance Company where he was vice president of Independent Distribution Marketing. Prior to American General, his roles included over 20 years of combined experience in annuity marketing at MassMutual Financial Group and Aetna Life Insurance & Annuity Company.
