The Grateful Dead

Or, an incentive to murder our employees.

[Acme Shit] is an equal opportunity employer and offers a comprehensive benefits package including: medical, dental, vision, 401k, paid time off, company sponsored life insurance, long term disability, flexible spending account options, and a pro-active and accessible HR department that focuses on the staff's health and happiness.

Company sponsored life insurance? Hmm…

Business life insurance can help you meet the needs of your employees. More often than not, employees are not only looking for better wages or compensation; they are also looking for better insurance benefits. One very cost-effective solution to this problem is to offer your employees life insurance through your business.

In fact, you'd be surprised how many people actually don't have any life insurance at all. [In my line of business, we call them "the sane."] Therefore, employer-sponsored life insurance can prove to be very attractive — for the purposes of employee retention or attracting new talent.

Most of the time, employees are grateful to have been offered any sort of life insurance coverage. [???]

Offering life insurance to your employees is relatively cheap and makes a very attractive fringe benefit that every employee will appreciate. So, if you're considering different methods to better retain quality employees, then offering company-sponsored life insurance should be one of the first benefits you offer.

Life insurance? Grateful? Why would I want life insurance? I might just as well tattoo "murder me" on my forehead?!
