The article presents the Virtual Employee Benefits Fair created by Kathy Kacher in 2006 where employees are able to study their company's benefit offerings online. This was a result of the interest of human resource clients in coming up with new ways to engage their employees. With the program, employers can keep track of the number of people who visit a particular benefit or booth and a feature is also present that allows employees to send e-mails to the human resource department.
