LEAF College Savings, the first web-based benefit solution for education savings, announced that the Company is prominently featured in a newly-published white paper by Helios HR, a human capital management consulting and recruiting firm. The white paper, "Innovative New Benefits That Will Help Your Company Win the Talent War," emphasizes the need for organizations to look beyond traditional benefits in order to attract and engage top talent. It offers employers of all sizes key insights on the evolving expectations of today's workforce and the role technology plays in the delivery and implementation of benefits deemed to be 'innovative.'

The paper emphasizes the important role that education benefits play in the hierarchy of employee expectations. For companies seeking new ways to meet employee education and development needs, a solution that facilitates college savings might be a good fit, the paper suggests. LEAF College Savings was singled out as an innovative, web-based technology approach for companies to enable their workforce to automatically contribute to existing college savings plans -- 529 plans -- as well as to allow employers to offer optional company-matching funds.
The paper praised LEAF College Savings for two distinct advantages: facilitating employees to direct their payroll-based contributions to any 529 plan in the U.S., thereby providing the widest choice of savings options, and allowing employers to offer a contribution match similar to a 401(k).
"LEAF's product lets employers provide a more equitable and easier to manage benefit while encouraging employees to have a financial stake in their educational development, improving outcomes and lowering overall program costs and burdens," explains
"The rising cost of a college education compelled us to create this easy-to-use, voluntary benefit platform so that employers could effortlessly support higher education savings and even company matching without all the paperwork and administrative support previously required," explains LEAF co-founder
"Companies that offer innovative benefits including education savings are positively differentiating themselves in the war for talent," adds
