Celebrating Heroes on National Employee Benefits Day 2020

Created by the International Foundation of Employee Benefits Plans (IFEBP), National Employee Benefits Day is celebrated every year on April 2 to recognize the trustees, administrators, benefits practitioners and professional advisors for their dedication to providing quality benefits and the important role they play in their colleagues' well-being.

For 2020, these benefit professionals are being asked to navigate uncharted waters amid the Coronavirus pandemic. Going along with the IFEBP's original theme of "Perk Up Your Perks" to celebrate this year's event, we've put together resources to help these heroes do what they do best — protect employees so they feel safe, informed and confident.
