You might not realize how important the benefits side of the compensation package is when trying to attract, retain and motivate your employees. In addition to salaries and bonuses, benefits can add significant value to the total compensation per employee. Job seekers are taking careful consideration when comparing offers, so businesses should also look very closely at what options to offer their employees.

Even if the businesses have separate Federal Employee Identification Numbers (FEINs), the number of employees is pooled together for purposes of ACA.
