Here's the Beef...

According to a new survey, more than half of the employers who responded have enhanced employee benefits in the past 6 months. Of those, almost 9 out of 10 added some kind (or kinds) of health-related benefits. About 40% increased paid vacation days, and about a third added some kind of flex-hour or job-sharing deal.

Some two-thirds of those surveyed indicated that they had added some kind of financial incentive, such as increased pension matches, as well.

Called "pragmatic benefits," the emphasis is on offering things that are more lifestyle related, not just "show me the money."
