Fringe Benefits

Fringe benefits are extra incentives provided to employees over and above their stated salaries for performing particular services. While some ancillary benefits, like social security and health insurance, are mandated by the law, other ancillary benefits are usually offered freely by the employer. Human resource management software or an HRIS allows you to easily manage employee benefits while getting rid of annoying paperwork that slows the benefits administration processes down.
