Today we recognize the important work that Human Resource professionals, plan administrators, trustees and fiduciaries, as well as professional advisors do on behalf of the nation’s workers and employers. Beyond the apparent role of protecting workers, benefit professionals also help American business navigate complex regulatory rules for the purpose of attracting and retaining the workforce it needs to attain its goals. It is this ability to help a business achieve its objectives while simultaneously creating benefit for the worker that makes our work so rewarding. Happy National Employee Benefits Day!
