Kevin Crain – Head of Retirement Research & Insights at Bank of America 

The employer needs to ask the employees, ‘What are the
needs and demands of working here?’  And you need to
look at that by different segments, like age and gender.

Between balancing working from and living at home and battling burnout, the “great resignation” is sweeping the country. As employees reevaluate priorities and consider alternate job opportunities, now is the time for employers to take another look at benefit offerings and workplace perks to best retain and attract top talent. In fact, based on Bank of America’s recent Workplace Benefits Report, workplace benefits programs must go beyond financial topics. Kevin Crain is the Head of Retirement Research & Insights at Bank of America. In this position, he leads a team of experienced professionals, who create and deliver research focused on workforce aging, longevity, benefits diversity and inclusion, employee financial wellness and other workplace trends. The team shares their research through research pieces and national/local market events for the Bank’s associates, advisors, individual investors, institutional clients and their employees.
