The big news at PLANSPONSOR this week was the announcement of our 2016 Plan Sponsor of the Year Winners and Standouts. But, among news for plan sponsors, were reports about changes they can expect with the impending Department of Labor (DOL) fiduciary rule. Fidelity shared news about what financial wellness help employees need, and that employee stock purchase programs (ESPPs) can help with financial well-being. In addition, surveys showed that retirement plan participants are using their instincts to make decisions and admit they need one-on-one guidance, and women need help planning for their biggest retirement fear.
