A key to bottom-line success for any organization is its ability to attract and retain high-caliber employees. Offering outstanding benefits is one way to draw and keep great employees, of course. But equally important is helping employees learn to make the most of their benefits--particularly when it comes to defined-contribution plans. So many employees miss opportunities to create a comfortable retirement because they don’t understand how defined-contribution plans work, why they’re important and how they can be used most effectively.
If your organization does an outstanding job educating employees about your defined contribution plan, then the Eddy Awards are for you.
The competition, co-sponsored byWorkforce Management and its sister publication, Pensions & Investments, recognizes corporate, public and union defined contribution plan sponsors for the best and most effective investment education programs in several categories. Nominations are due Oct. 15.
Winners will be announced and will receive their awards at the 14th Annual Defined Contribution/401(k) East Coast Conference this winter.
The 2005 Eddy Awards are just around the corner. Now is the time to gather your materials and begin the submission process.
