HR online. More than half (55%) of employers surveyed by consulting firm Watson Wyatt Worldwide offer workers Web access to personalized health benefits information, 52% provide Web access to retirement benefits information, and 46% offer paycheck information online. Still, just 16% provide online information about total compensation. Employees are managing more human resources transactions online, found the study.
Watch out! Automobile drivers living within one mile of a car dealership are 23% more likely to have a car accident than those who reside more than a mile away, found a recent study by Quality Planning Corporation, a predictive analytics company that helps insurers price insurance. QPC examined more than 15 million policyholders and two million claims, mapping the proximity of vehicle-owners' addresses to various types of businesses. The riskiest place to live is within a mile of a restaurant (30% more accident risk). The safest place: within a mile of a church (10% less risk of an accident resulting in property damage than for those residing farther away).
