More retirees are returning to work

THE TREND of retirees continuing to work or returning to work continues to grow, according to a T. Rowe Price report.
• They see part-time retirement work as a good transition strategy;
• Women and single retirees are more likely than men or married couples to cite income as their primary motivator;
• The largest financial benefits are delaying retirement account withdrawals and Social Security benefits.
"Many retirees either choose to work or need work to be included in their retirement lifestyle," says Judith Ward, CFP®, a thought leadership director at T. Rowe Price. "The decision can have many powerful positive effects, not least of which is financial well-being."

What new hires want

NEW HIRES value workplace friendships more than meeting with the CEO, a study by BambooHR of more than 1,500 workers shows.
Doing so is an important part of “onboarding,” which is much more than a welcome email and a tech checklist, says Anita Grantham, head of human relations at BambooHR.
The first 44 days are critical. During those days a company needs to make a new hire confident by emphasizing the company’s mission and values, the significance of the role the new hire fills, and the plans for growth and success that the new employee can anticipate.
Top frustrations include a lack of clarity about who can answer questions, inadequate training on company products and services, and technology issues. The complete survey can be read here.

Onsite health centers cut cost of workers' care

WELLNESS CENTERS established onsite or near businesses save an average 25% on the total cost of employees’ care, an analysis by Premise Health of Brentwood, Tennessee shows. Employers are facing rising health care costs that are unsustainable, says Stu Clark, chief executive officer of Premise. So much so that health care costs are now impacting earning per share at most companies. The study showed wellness centers led to a 27% reduction in emergency room visits, a 36% cut in inpatient hospital admissions and a 39% increase in preventive and routine office visits.

Canadian employers planning lower increases

EMPLOYERS IN Canada are planning lower increases for merit and total compensation next year compared with this year. Average budgets call for 3.3% for merit increases and 3.7% for total increase budgets, according to a Mercer survey.
Employers are doing so even though they recognize that cost of living is a major concern for Canadians. The reason is that the labor market is stabilizing and pay increases are no longer as necessary to retain and attract workers.
