How Much Are Your Employees Worth?

by Danielle Yako & Christina EganJanuary 2, 2014 7:46 AM

With today’s challenging economy, employees are often finding themselves searching for a better paying job.  A recent survey states that 47 percent of top-performers are looking for jobs. That statistic could be earth shattering for any business. "Whenever there’s a shift in talent, it’s the ones you want to keep that leave first."

Little do they know, they may be making more than they think.  Employees typically only see their take home pay and not the cost of the additional benefits you as the employer are offering.  

As an employer, it is imperative to make sure your staff feels valued.  A great way to accomplish this is to show employees everything they are being offered besides what they put in the bank.  By presenting your employees with these facts, it will encourage them to stick around. Turnover rates can not only bring morale down, it is also a huge cost to you. With costs like unemployment taxes, job ad placements, background checks, training, and administrative costs during the process, it could cost you thousands of dollars each time an employee quits.   

What you can do

If only there was a way to show to employees their base pay plus all that your business offers.  That’s where GMS comes in.  We have the resources to create a Benefit Summary for each employee. These summaries will show your employees that their services are valued and they are getting more than just their take home pay.  


"Our employees were unaware of how much we invest in them until they saw the Benefit Summaries. Many expressed that they felt valued as an employee and were happy to see the summary"

- Jennifer H., Current GMS client

What is included on a Benefit Summary?Benefit Summaries can include benefits including but not limited to:
