State of Employee Benefits
To create its analysis of employee benefit plan design and participation, Benefitfocus aggregated, anonymized and analyzed 3.5 million actual enrollment records over a four-year period from nearly 350 large employer customers (1,000+ employees). That analysis is illustrated through graphs and appending tables and depicts trends for benefit plan design and participation leading up to and following the onset of COVID-19.
