Navigating the Pandemic: A Survey of U.S. Employers 

June 8, 2021 

Employers play a vital societal role by providing employment, work experience, employee benefits, and the ability for workers to save and invest for a secure retirement. This report examines the pandemic's impact on employers across company, their response, and timely opportunities. A strong employee benefits package, including retirement benefits, health insurance, workplace wellness programs, and caregiver support, can create a win-win situation for employers and their employees. Especially now, as our nation is emerging from the pandemic, employers need support from policymakers to continue paving the way for their recovery and to make it as easy as possible to enhance their business practices and expand their benefits offerings.  
          
The survey asked 1,903 employers what their companies are doing differently amid the coronavirus pandemic to support their employees' health, financial security, and general well-being. Below is a curation of their verbatim responses. Click to expand image.
