While most small and midsize companies offer their employees health and life insurance, those alone may not win an employee's long-term loyalty. Just over half of the businesses Inc. recently polled offer a 401(k), only about a third have a retirement or pension plan, and a mere one-fifth offer a thrift/savings plan. Employee-assistance programs have yet to make a blip on the charts.
