We rank the top providers based on customer satisfaction surveys.
By The Editors
HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings are based solely on feedback from buyers of the rated services; the ratings are not based on the opinion of the HRO Today staff. We collect feedback annually through an online survey which we distribute to buyers directly through our own mailing lists and indirectly through service providers. Once collected, response data for all providers with a statistically significant sample size are loaded into the HRO Today database for analysis. For this survey, we required 10 responses from seven companies.
Moving up isn’t the only way to achieve successful career development.
By Beverly Kaye and Lindy Williams
Engagement surveys reveal, again and again, that individuals join organizations to pursue career possibilities and they leave organizations if those opportunities don’t materialize.

By Christopher Dwyer

Today’s wellness programs benefit both employees and organizations alike.
By Lynn Herrick
HR executives understand the biggest asset to any company is its people. And the biggest asset to employees? Their health and well-being. Nowadays, employees are placing even greater value on taking care of their mental and physical health, which is why it makes good business sense for organizations to ensure that employee wellness is a top business priority. The numbers don’t lie: A study from Willis Towers Watson found that a healthy, happy workforce can reduce overall business costs by more than $1,600 per employee, driven by a decreased need for taking time off for injuries or unplanned sickness. On the other hand, not having a workplace wellness program can be incredibly costly considering the potential risk for high turnover, employee absenteeism, and decreased employee morale.
Customizable benefits are key to engaging, retaining, and motivating millennial employees.
By Bradd Chignoli
Millennials have become the largest generation in the labor force, making up more than one-third of the total workforce, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. As a result, organizations are striving to understand and meet the needs of this diverse demographic. And this is just one generation. Today’s workforce spans four—soon to be five—generations, and is comprised of various demographic and socio-economic backgrounds. So, it’s more important than ever that organizations’ benefit options are just as diverse and are designed to meet each employee’s individual goals and needs. How can this be accomplished?
