Fringe benefits are a hot topic for employers looking to attract and retain talent in a tight labor market. Often, fringe benefits can be provided at relatively little cost while still providing benefit that employees value. Over time, changes in the business environment and employee demographics cause different fringe benefits to be perceived as valuable. This course will provide an overview of recent fringe benefit trends and the considerations for offering those benefits. Some benefits covered may include student loan payments, snacks, reward programs, and wellness programs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize recent trends in fringe benefits
  • Recall tax consequences of trending fringe benefits
  • Identify important factors when choosing fringe benefits
