Summary

New Features

  • A new chapter (Chapter 2, Economics of Employee Benefits) was contributed by Professor Darren Lubotsky, University of Illinois. Ultimately, a company's decision to offer discretionary employee benefits and the type of benefits coverage rests on economic rationale that is essential to promoting advantages to companies in terms of cost control as well as recruiting and retaining the best talent. This chapter was written in language for non-economists.
  • Administration and flexible benefits have moved from Chapter 2 to Chapter 10 because all of the components of employee benefits programs are fully discussed in previous chapters.
  • The materials on strategic benefits have moved from Chapter 2 to Chapter 1 to punctuate the importance of employee benefits program planning as part of top-level decision making in companies.
  • The public insurance programs (previously, Chapters 4 and 5) have been combined into one in the second edition (Chapter 7) to allow for greater attention to the discretionary benefits programs over which companies have the greatest control and about which companies must make decisions.
