Coming Soon!
2013 Iowa Employer Benefits Study©

David P. Lind BenchmarkWe are very pleased that nearly 1,060 Iowa employers have responded to our 2013 Iowa Employer Benefits Study©! This surpassed our goal of having 1,000 organizations participate in our 15th annual survey. The results of this study will be available in early September.

To put this response into meaningful perspective, the recently released 2013 Kaiser/HRET Employer Health Benefits Survey, a highly-regarded national survey, reported 592 respondents in the Midwest Region that consists of 12 states (including Iowa). In other words, our survey has 78 percent more 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 this phenomenal response, in mid-September we will unveil new and exciting enhancements with this year’s study. Some of the changes include:

  • The Overall Summary of the 2013 Iowa Employer Benefits Study© will be available in an electronic format, allowing employers to access this report on our website. As with our 2012 survey, printed studies will no longer be available.
  • Employers who participated in the 2013 Survey will be sent an invitation in late-September to download this report using a specific pass code.
  • Employers who did not participate in the 2013 Survey will be able to download this Overall Summary. A fee will be required to access this report.

In addition to the above enhancements, we’ll be introducing a new benchmarking tool in September, allowing employers to compare their specific benefit offerings with other Iowa employers. This innovative benchmarking tool, Lindex-Online® has been developed with simplicity and intuitiveness in mind. In addition to learning how your benefits package compares with other Iowa organizations (using many criteria such as employer size, industry and location), employers will now be able to learn their individual Lindex® score and how their total benefits package compares to Iowa norms. I must say, there are some very innovative aspects about this benchmark program that will be extremely helpful to employers of all size and industry!

Please visit our website frequently to learn when this new web-based tool will be available. An easy way to stay informed is to subscribe to this blog.
