Due to interest from members relating to the U.S. health-care reform debate, WorldatWork conducted a snapshot survey to quickly gauge current practices and opinions. This brief survey concentrates on only a couple of the focus areas in this national debate: taxation of benefits and wellness programs.
WorldatWork invited all Premier members to participate through messaging in various e-newsletters and WorldatWork blogs as well as the WorldatWork homepage. The survey was open for participation from July 28 to July 31, 2009. While the survey was targeted to WorldatWork Premier members, nonmembers may have gained access to the survey through blogs and member discussion of the survey that occurred in the WorldatWork Online Community. A total of 231 members and nonmembers participated.
