A study suggests that differences in fringe benefit packages are related to employer size and to on-the-job training investment. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' 1988 Employee Benefits Survey, a National Institute of Health 1982 employer survey, and the 1989 National Longitudinal Survey of Youth were examined. Logit estimates show that larger firms are more likely to offer retirement health insurance and temporary leaves. Results also indicate that jobs with substantial training are more likely to have fringe benefits such as retirement health insurance, presumably to attract workers with a low propensity for turnover. There is some evidence that jobs with higher training may be less likely to provide leaves, which is consistent with the finding that leave benefits are not directly correlated with worker tenure.
