MELBOURNE, FLA.— PLANSPONSOR, the nation’s leading retirement plan resource, recently recognized Florida Institute of Technology as a 2010 finalist in the annual Plan Sponsor of the Year awards. Florida Tech was honored in the non-profit/403(b) category.
On an annual basis, the editors of PLANSPONSOR magazine identify individuals or institutions/employers that demonstrate leadership in providing a more secure retirement for workers. According to Nevin E. Adams, Editor-in-Chief of PLANSPONSOR, “Each of the finalists has distinguished itself in unique and quantifiable ways, and with demonstrable results during this especially critical period. We are pleased once again to be able to acknowledge a true diversity of contributions and leadership by organizations that are seriously committed to helping workers retire with dignity.”
