A third of small businesses are offering health care and 401k benefits. For some, the cost is too high as their businesses are just starting out. Others may seek to expand their offerings by using their payroll provider to outsource health care and 401k benefits.
Widely offered perks from small business employers include free coffee and Wi-Fi, along with occasional lunches.
Small business owners also report that many employees are looking for flexible work schedules and more relaxed work environments, along with more traditional offerings such as year-end or quarterly bonuses.
