This paper discusses how group benefits have changed over the past ten years, what corporations are offering their employees such as medical insurance, employee assistance programs, wellness training programs, child care programs, flexible compensation plans, continuing education benefits and retirement benefits and how each one of these benefits is set up . Employers want not only to implement benefit programs which will help them meet their organizational goals, but also to attract, retain and motivate employees. In order to succeed in these efforts they must install a program of benefits that is both cost effective and will meet organizational profit goals.

The purpose of the study is to investigate what companies are offering their employees and how the employees felt about benefits being offered . One hundred employees from different corporations participated in the study, sixty-two male subjects and thirty-eight female subjects.

The results of the study concluded that corporations must offer a benefits program to retain and motivate employees.
