    Smallest businesses lead with personalized benefits, Colonial Life study finds

    People who work at the smallest U.S. businesses understand their employee benefits the best, according to a new survey from Colonial Life. In a survey of 1,506 full-time U.S. employees, Colonial Life found 47% of employees who work for companies with fewer than 100 employees report understanding their benefits “very well.” Workers at larger businesses are less confident in their benefits understanding: Only 33% of employees who have more than 100 coworkers report understanding their benefits that well. One reason employees at the smallest companies understand their benefits better is their employers’ commitment to personalized benefits education, says Colonial Life’s Richard Shaffer, senior vice president for growth markets.
