In December 2011 and January 2012, CFO Research Services surveyed senior finance executives at U.S. companies that sponsor defined benefit (DB) plans to examine the impact of current market forces on benefits planning. This year's survey found that employers are becoming more interested in a range of strategies to control costs and reduce the financial risk of their benefits programs, while providing employees with the best benefits possible. Similar surveys were conducted in 2009 and 2010.
