Well, the whole idea of employee benefits is to attract a skilled, committed, and loyal workforce. With this attitude, you will be getting and retaining folks who do not have a lot of career options. Great for cost containment, but penny wise-pound foolish in my opinion.
In fairness to employers, employee benefits like healthcare and retirement have been so overpriced and margins so thin that you can barely afford wages and payroll taxes, let alone perks.
