2010 HRM "Stimulus Package" 7 Best Practices for Your Retirement Savings Plan in a Tough Economy.

Los Angeles, CA, June 11, 2010 --( MMC Releases White Paper on retirement saving plans.

MMC has released a whitepaper, "HRM best practices responding to impact of market crisis on retirement saving plans," written by MMC, Inc.'s, panel of HRCI/MCLE trainer Dan Van Bogaert discusses 7 best HR practices for your retirement saving plans in a tough economy.

"Today's tough economy has caused many employers to react in a survival mode with their retirement savings plans, sometimes without considering potential unintended consequences," said Bogaert. "HR professionals must re-examine best practices to control costs; particularly costs related to retirement savings plans, to avoid potential long term problems. HRM can play a key role in helping their organizations ensure that retirement savings plans incentivize employees, especially in the current period of slow economic recovery."

7 suggested best practice areas for retirement savings plans that HRM may want to consider for 2010:

- Hold Investment Managers accountable

- Encourage maximum employee participation

- Equip employees to make informed investment decisions

- Evaluate (or resume) employer match contributions

- Beware of "furlough fallout"

- Plan ahead with pre-retirement planning programs

- Learn Compliance Issues Re: Plan Change
