Many companies have arrived at a simple conclusion: the best investment they can make is in their human capital. But to make the most of that investment – and attract and retain the best people – organizations need to use their benefits as a tool to address shifting workforce dynamics, including an aging talent pool whose intellectual capital and experience is an important engine for success. Employees, be they Generation Yers or Baby Boomers, who feel like their employer is investing in their long-term financial wellness will, in turn, invest more in the success of the company.
