MetLife’s 14th Annual Employee Benefit Trends Study Released

May 10, 2016

MetLife’s 14th Annual U.S. Employee Benefit Trends Study reveals employee loyalty is on the rise, with 45 percent of employees saying they plan to work for their current employer 12 months from now, compared with 41 percent last year. Loyalty is strong among all generations with 57 percent of baby boomers and 53 percent of both Generation X and millennials saying they are committed to their current employer’s goals. This may be due to increasing financial concern: just 46 percent of all employees expect their personal financial situation to get better in the next year, compared to over half (52 percent) in 2014.

Employees, particularly millennials, are looking to their employers for help when it comes to addressing financial matters. Just under half of millennials (44 percent) say they want their employer to help them solve their financial concerns, a response more than double that of boomers (20 percent). Similarly, three-fourths (75 percent) of millennials say their employers have a responsibility for the financial well-being of their employees.
