The effects can be seen at many levels. An executive at a firm that had recently experienced the trauma of downsizing feared that employees would only give their feet and not their minds to the business. He worried that because of the ill will caused by the restructurings, more Beaumont small group business health insurance employees would put their time but not their energy into company goals. Another executive was saddened when an employee, retiring after thirty-five years with the company, commented during his exit interview, “For the last fifteen years you had my body but not my mind.”

While the importance of these activities has declined, employee needs have not, and successful HR professionals must find serious replacement activities if they are to ensure Beaumont small group business health insurance employee commitment.
