SHRM Members Can Customize Annual Benefits Data

Ever wonder how SHRM research applies to your workplace? SHRM members will soon be able to filter SHRM Annual Employee Benefits research with an interactive benchmarking tool to see how their employers’ offerings compare with those of organizations similar in size, location and industry.

Users can view the full gamut of benefits research SHRM has compiled over the last five years and compare and contrast their benefits offerings with those of their competitors and peers.

“This data is now at your fingertips whenever you need it, for whatever reason,” said SHRM researcher Derrick Scheetz.

The SHRM Annual Employee Benefits report for 2022 and the online benchmarking tool will be released Sunday, June 12. The report also measures the prevalence of benefits not previously reported in past years, such as paid mental health days, hybrid work options and subsidies for remote workers.
