ABSTRACT
The article reports on a poll conducted by Fidelity Investments' Consulting Services which revealed the doubt of workers about the future of employer-sponsored benefits in the U.S. The survey found that about 48% of employees believe their benefits will not be provided by their employers in the future, while 61% said that they are paying more benefits but getting less or the same as they did in 2007. However, 72% of respondents believe that their benefits at work are better than other companies offer.
