Did you know that this coming Friday, September 6, is National 401(k) Day? Who would've thought there was a national holiday devoted to promoting 401(k) education?

Given that there's a day of observance for pretty much everything (you can celebrate National Peanut Day just one day later), it's actually pretty smart that we have one to increase awareness about the importance of saving for retirement. Started by the Plan Sponsor Council of America, part of the American Retirement Association, National 401(k) Day is celebrated the Friday after Labor Day, so that we can "start the week with Labor Day and end the week with Retirement". 

401(k) and similar retirement savings plans are, of course, just one of many important benefits companies offer employees to contribute positively to their quality of life and overall well-being. As you know, Vault recently released our 2020 Rankings of the Best Consulting Firms to Work For in North America.
