The Employee Benefits Report is an overview of the health insurance, retirement and paid-leave benefits offered to employees in Washington. Data include the percentage of employees offered benefits and the percentage of employers offering benefits, by industry and firm size.
Benefits are an important part of how employees are paid. This report helps job seekers, employers and policy-makers make informed decisions.

What else should I know about these data?
Beginning this year, improvements were made in the sampling, estimations approach and questions asked of employers. These changes resulted in improved reporting on Washington’s employment conditions, but do inhibit comparisons to previous years’ results.
Details about how we conduct the survey and analyze the data are in the “Methodology” section at the end of the report. The report also includes a copy of the survey sent to employers.
