Coming Soon!
2012 Iowa Employer Benefits Study©

David P. Lind BenchmarkWe are very pleased that over 1,200 Iowa employers have responded to our 2012 Iowa Employer Benefits Study©, which is the highest response in the 14 years of performing this survey! To put this response into meaningful perspective, the 2012 Kaiser/HRET Employer Health Benefits Survey, a highly-regarded national survey, reported 604 respondents in the Midwest Region that consists of 12 states (including Iowa).  In other words, our survey has twice the respondents…in just ONE state! This means that we are able to accurately report the specific benefits offered by Iowa employers using extremely credible data.

In addition to having this phenomenal response, we will unveil new and exciting enhancements with this year’s study in mid-October. Some of the changes include:

  • The Overall Summary report of the 2012 Iowa Employer Benefits Study© will now be available in an electronic format, allowing employers to access this report on our website. This summary will be very similar to the printed summaries produced in the past. Printed studies will no longer be available.
  • Employers who have responded to the 2012 Survey will be sent an invitation in mid-October to download this report using a specific pass code.
  • Employers that have not participated in the 2012 Survey will be able to download this Overall Summary report.  A fee will be required to access this report.
  • Separate industry reports will also be available for purchase. The industries we report on include:
    • Manufacturing
    • Retail
    • Finance and Insurance
    • Healthcare and Social Services
    • State and Local Governments (including Public Education)
    • All Other Industries (included in the Overall Report only)

In addition to the above enhancements, we’ll be introducing a new benchmarking tool during the first quarter 2013, allowing employers to compare their specific benefit offering with other Iowa employers. The benchmarking tool is being developed with simplicity and intuitiveness in mind. Please visit our website frequently to learn when this tool will be available.
