Life insurance, medical insurance,
and 401(k) retirement plans are the benefits and policies most
often offered by employers to Class of 2014 college graduates,
according to results from NACE's Job Outlook
Nearly all of the employers
responding to the survey indicated they will offer life insurance,
medical insurance, and 401(k) retirement plans to their new hires.
Most respondents also noted they will offer annual salary increases,
dental insurance, and an employee assistance/counseling program.
(See Figure 1.)
While the benefits and policies that
employers offer new college graduates are generally consistent from
year to year, there are two notable changes from last year. Four
out of five respondents to the current survey are offering
bonus/commission plans—up from just under 70 percent—and a larger
percentage are offering flextime.
NACE collected data for the Job
Outlook 2014 survey from its college recruiting
