Employees favor benefits insulated from market gyrations

Almost four in 10 employees of U.S. businesses would accept a smaller salary increase for a retirement benefit that doesn’t change with market performance, according to new research.

Towers Watson, New York, published this finding in a report based on the U.S. results of two global studies—one with human resources executives representing the employer point of view; the other with a random sample of employees—to determine the effectiveness of workplace practices. Towers Watson conducted the 17th edition of the “2012-2013 Global Talent Management and Reward Study” in partnership with World@Work. The U.S. results are based on responses from 278 organization and 3,600 employees.
