Discover what benefits help make your manufacturing business an “employer of choice,” reducing recruiting and retention costs.

Benefits can give Rhode Island Manufacturers a competitive edge in recruiting and retention. Many employers aren’t sure what to offer, however, and/or what’s manageable for the smaller-sized manufacturing businesses most typical in the Ocean State.


In this webinar, you’ll learn how and why Benefits are a driver of job quality and what kind of benefits employees want.

We’ll also explore one of the most sought-after benefit – retirement plans – along with a new, forward-thinking type of plan that can be used for reducing the turnover of critical employees.

Subject matter experts from the Employers Association of the NorthEast and Mutual of America will be featured in this lively webinar. They’ll share data, anecdotes, insights, and tips for evaluating your current benefits offerings from various perspectives.
