Coming Soon! 2014 Iowa Employer Benefits Study©

David P. Lind BenchmarkWe are very pleased that 1,002 Iowa employers have responded to our 2014 Iowa Employer Benefits Study©! This number met our goal of having 1,000 organizations participate in our 16th annual survey. The results of this study will be available in early-to-mid September.

To put this response into meaningful perspective, the 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 69 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.

As we prepare to release our 16th Study, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • The Overall Summary of the 2014 Iowa Employer Benefits Study© will be available for download from our website. As with our 2013 survey, printed studies will no longer be available.
  • Employers who participated in the 2014 Survey will be sent an invitation in September to download this report using a specific pass code.
  • Employers who did not participate in the 2014 Survey will be able to download this Overall Summary for a small fee.

We will also be updating our innovative benchmarking tool, allowing employers to compare their specific benefit offerings with other Iowa employers. Lindex-Online® was 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. There are some very sophisticated aspects about this benchmark program that will be extremely helpful to employers of all size and industry!

Please continue to visit our website to learn when our 2014 Iowa Employer Benefits Study© is available for download and when our Lindex-Online® tool has been updated with fresh 2014 survey data.
