By: Dan Johnson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing

A company’s success is built on the work of its employees. By extension, that makes hiring (and retaining) the best and brightest employees a critical part of success. Today, unemployment is low: 4.1 percent. Keep in mind, that 4.1 percent is an average, so in some places, that number may be much lower.

By: Dan Johnson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing

You may not think that a few ineligible dependents could really cost you much money until you understand how much a dependent really costs. According to Mercer, that number is around $4,500. So, take that and multiply it by the typical 3-10% of ineligibles, and you are talking big, big savings.1
