Wackenhut Enhances Health Insurance Plans Without Raising Costs
Date:11/26/2007

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wackenhut Corporation, the leading security services provider, announced today that it has once again managed to enhance its employee medical and dental insurance plans significantly for most employees, without raising costs. This is further validation that Wackenhut's focus on employee welfare is a primary business objective.

The Human Resources consulting firm, Mercer, released an overview of its most recent annual National Survey of Employer-Sponsored Health Plans, in which it reported that the total health benefit cost paid by U.S. companies rose by 6.1 percent in 2007, averaging $7,983 per employee. Most of the cost increase was passed on to employees. Wackenhut Human Resources worked diligently with United Healthcare and other major carriers to ensure that Wackenhut employees were not burdened with this increased health benefit cost.

Gary A. Sanders, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of The Wackenhut Corporation said, "This is another major achievement and one which directly and positively impacts our dedicated employees, especially considering that Mercer pointed out that health costs grew at more than twice the rate of inflation, outpacing wages and material costs, and eroding business profitability." An Employee Assistance Program for everyone at Wackenhut was also implemented, at no cost to employees.
