ONLINE ENROLMENT UP

Lincolnshire, Ill.

— Employees in the United States are using the Internet like never before. Approximately 70 per cent of workers use the Web to enrol for benefits. That percentage has nearly doubled in just two years, according to research by consulting firm Hewitt Associates. In 1999, Web enrolment was at 36 per cent, increasing to 52 per cent in 2000 and 70 per cent last year.
