Why offer a retirement plan?

Employers that offer a retirement plan are better equipped to:

  • Attract talented people
  • Reduce employee turnover costs 
  • Stay competitive
Employees who feel good about their finances have less stress and illness, reducing absenteeism. And when workers have the option to participate in a retirement plan at work, they're 15 times more likely to save for retirement than if they were on their own. 

The Retirement Marketplace makes it easy for you!
As a business owner you've got a lot on your mind. We expect you may have questions about offering a retirement plan to your employees. What does it cost? What are my options?
