Top benefits newsmakers of 2012

Move over, Prince Harry and Honey Boo Boo. These two may have been among this year’s “most fascinating” to Barbara Walters, but EBN's list is a bit more discerning. We've compiled a list of our 6 top benefits newsmakers of 2012, and we assure you there’s not a reality star or scandal-magnet monarch anywhere.

6. David Siegel

Siegel, CEO of Florida-based real estate and timeshare firm Westgate Resorts, infamously emailed his employees just weeks before election day to put them firmly on notice: “If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current president plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company. This means fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for everyone.” No word on whether Siegel followed through on his threat after President Obama was re-elected in November, but his note to workers represented all that was at stake in this year’s presidential election and how strongly employers on both sides of the political spectrum felt about the workforce issues that were debated throughout 2012.
