It’s not only a moral imperative to offer good benefits and economic security to employees – it’s smart business. When companies have talented and diverse employees who feel secure at work and at home, both people and businesses perform at their best.
Business Roundtable members are taking action to support employees and their needs, whether that means:
- Increasing minimum wages and adjusting starting-wage scales upward to increase employees’ economic security from the start;
- Investing in opportunities for employees to gain new skills, grow personally and professionally and contribute to a more innovative future for their companies;
- Increasing accessibility and affordability of health care before, during and after trying times; or
- Offering educational benefits, such as student loan repayment programs or scholarships for children of employees.
