2016 is coming to a close, and we’re on the brink of ringing in a new year that will undoubtedly bring new complexities and challenges to employee benefits. In 2017, it will be more important than ever to stay informed of the latest trends and issues emerging from the benefits landscape, and though January hasn’t begun, it’s never too early to start. Here are three benefits trends to look for in the year ahead.

The data is sad and shocking: More than two-thirds of Americans (76%) live paycheck to paycheck. Not saving, not setting goals for the future – merely surviving one Friday to another two weeks later. That’s no way to live. And of course as HR people, our first instinct is to want to help.
