Wish You Were Here: Principal to honor best companies for employee financial security

To put it mildly, helping employees feel financially secure in this economic environment is challenging. The Principal Financial Group® believes companies meeting the challenge deserve to be recognized, and thus have opened the eighth annual search for The Principal® 10 Best Companies for Employee Financial Security. The program recognizes 10 growing companies (with five to 1,000 employees) that excel at helping employees ensure their financial futures even in the face of the current recession.

“The Principal 10 Best judges recognize the turbulent economy is putting pressure on benefit programs like never before. They understand some companies are making thoughtful adjustments in their programs as a result,” says Principal VP Renee Schaaf. “Judges are looking for companies who are responding to business conditions in ways that least impact the long-term financial security of their work force.”

Nomination and entry forms are available here; nominees need not be Principal clients. Deadline for entries is May 1.

Good luck, and for inspiration, stay tuned for EBN's June 1 issue, for a profile of the 2008 honorees.
