2019 Iowa Employer Benefits Study© is Now Available!

2019 Iowa Employer Benefits Study©The 2019 Iowa Employer Benefits Study© overall summary is now available! As we have done with recent studies, we are providing this summary report through an electronic download only, rather than a printed hard copy.

The press release for this Study will be issued tomorrow, August 8.

As mentioned in a previous blog, we had 999 Iowa organizations participate in this year’s survey, reaching our goal of 1,000 respondents. In addition to the standard benefit questions presented each year, we asked organizations to share data on whether work-life and convenience benefits were offered by Iowa organizations, benefits that are highly-valued by employees.

If your organization participated in this year’s survey, we sincerely thank you for sharing your data with us and for your patience while the report was being published. We realize that many employers wish to use the results of this important Study during the fall enrollment process. On July 10th, participants in this Study were sent an email from us with a unique link to gain access to this report (at no cost).

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Again, we greatly appreciate your interest in this 20th study!

Coming Soon! 20th Iowa Employer Benefits Study©

Coming Soon! 2019 Iowa Employer Benefits Study©We are very pleased that about 1,000 Iowa employers have responded to our 2019 Iowa Employer Benefits Study©! This number met our goal of having at least 1,000 organizations participate in our 20th survey. The results of this study will be available Wednesday, August 7th.

As we prepare to release our 20th Study, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • The Overall Summary of the 2019 Iowa Employer Benefits Study© will be available for download from our website.
    • Employers who participated in the 2019 Survey were sent an email on July 10 to download this report using a specific pass code.
    • Employers who did not participate in the 2019 Survey will be able to download this Overall Summary for a small fee.

We have also updated our benchmarking program – Lindex®  allowing employers to compare their specific benefit offerings with other Iowa employers. Lindex® was developed with simplicity and intuitiveness in mind. In addition to learning how your benefits package compares with other Iowa organizations (using pertinent criteria such as employer size and industry), employers will 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!

Our 2019 Iowa Employer Benefits Study© and/or Lindex® benchmarking program will be available for purchase beginning August 7. You will be able to purchase the Study on this website.

How can employers determine their Lindex® score?

You can either contact DPLB to learn more or visit with your authorized-benefits consultant to develop your Lindex® score. If your consultant does not currently participate in the Lindex® program, have them contact DPLB to learn how!
