EDC Hosts Benefits Benchmarking Conversation with Linda Skoglund on December 15th

Please join St. Croix EDC on Tuesday, December 15th starting at 11:00 for an informative conversation on benefits benchmarking with Linda Skoglund, managing partner of JA Counter, an Alera Group Company.

Now in its tenth year, the Western Wisconsin Benefits Benchmarking survey was recently completed by JA Counter.  In addition to the usual benchmarks around benefits, the JA Counter team identified themes found within the survey as well as emerging trends employers will see in the upcoming year(s). Those themes include the ongoing talent shortage driving the need to effectively communicate culture as a top priority, with increasing trends in employer innovation to offer a Total Rewards style benefits package valued by employees in all stages of life and career.

Join the discussion with Linda Skoglund on JA Counter’s local and national benchmarking results as well as how employers are rising to the challenge to offer unique benefits to attract and retain their workers.
