72% of workers in small companies are not covered by retirement plans   Small Business Administration

59% of Americans who expect to receive a pension upon retirement.  But only 42 percent can identify a pension to which they are entitled.  Consumer Report

49% of employers who expect workers to check in with the office while they are on vacation.

42% of employers in 2010 who believe that the recession has increased the quantity and quality of candidates they recruit.  Talent Drive.
