Does Your Employee Benefit Plan Shout “Quality!” to the DOL?

A solid employee benefit plan is among your company’s most valuable assets. It enables you to attract and recruit the best talent. It boosts the job satisfaction of current employees, making them more productive and more likely to stay with you.
