401Ks Set Your Small Business Apart from the Crowd

Most small businesses don’t have 401Ks. Why should I set one up?- Joan Callister, Oklahoma

Only about 15% of small business outfits employing anywhere between five to 100 people offer retirement plans. This is a great reason why your business should go against the tide and set up a retirement plan for your employees. A 401K plan makes your business much more attractive to prospective employees because it shows them you genuinely care about their welfare.

You can use your 401K plan to present yourself as a good employer so that you attract the best talent in town to your company. By encouraging participation and adding in some employer contributions you can also boost employee morale quite significantly. All of these reflect positively on your business as productivity improves when employees are happy.

You can give your employees a great deal of control over their 401k plan to make it even more attractive and easy to manage by opting for a comprehensive suite like http://401k-easy.com. These suites simplify the set up, administration and management of the retirement plan so that tracking the contributions and keeping account of the balances becomes a simple task. As the employer, this suite makes updating records effortless and quick. You and your employees can even redefine investment choices with just a few clicks.

Such 401K suites are ideal for small businesses because of the low cost and the fact that they give the employee a significant amount of flexibility over the plan. In this way, you can set up a 401k plan that is highly adaptable to the employee’s needs. This definitely sets your business above others that do not offer retirement savings plans.
