When it comes to 401(k)s and retirement plans, it’s important to help your employees out as much as possible. Make sure they take the time to learn how the plans can have a positive and outsized impact on their lives down the road.

But, don’t make it too easy. Don’t just hand them brochures and paperwork and walk away.
