US-based MetLife has enhanced its dental, disability and life insurance products available to smaller employers.

The company claims that the enhancements provide greater flexibility and additional benefit features to help smaller businesses effectively deliver competitive benefits programs that meet the needs of their diverse employee populations and their business objectives.

Todd Katz, senior vice president of institutional business at MetLife, said:
Benefits programs can be strategic differentiators for employers since benefits satisfaction has been linked to employee retention, according to the sixth annual MetLife Study of Employee Benefits Trends. The enhancements enable small businesses to optimize the value of their benefits programs by tailoring features to meet the needs of their unique employee populations, while addressing their employee retention and cost sensitivity issues.
