Employers could be squandering a huge recruiting opportunity with their 401(k) plans
By Valerie Bolden-Barrett
Most of the respondents (67%) in a Betterment for Business survey described a good 401(k) plan as an “important” or “very important” consideration in evaluating a job offer. But despite the plans’ favorable standing among job seekers, 30% of respondents said details about their employers’ 401(k)s never surfaced during the job search. Betterment polled 845 employees who work at client employers.
