Methodology and sample characteristics The Guardian 12th Annual Workplace Benefits Study was fielded in February and March of 2022 and consisted of two online surveys: one among benefits decision-makers (employers) and another among working Americans (employees), allowing us to explore benefits issues from both perspectives. Survey data collection and tabulation were managed for Guardian by Zeldis Research, an independent market research firm located in Ewing, NJ. Unless otherwise noted, all information contained in this report is from the 12th Annual Guardian Workplace Benefits Study, 2023, or from the 11th Annual Guardian Workplace Benefits Study, 2022. Employer survey Employer results are based on a national online survey of 2,000 employee benefits decision-makers. Respondents include business executives, business owners, human resources professionals, and financial management professionals. The survey covers all industries and is nationally representative of US businesses with at least five full-time employees. For the purposes of this report, small businesses were defined as having fewer than 100 employees. Data shown in this report have been weighted to reflect the actual proportion of US businesses by company size, based on data from the US Census Bureau. The margin of error at the 95% confidence level is +/- 2.2%.
