The pensions issue would be a massive one to investigate at this stage, as many economists argue that statistics show we are sitting on a time bomb with so many people coming up to retirment over the next few years accompanied by a decline in birth rates meaning that those who are left in the labour force will have to work longer and harder to give pensioners any pension at all. This problem is confounded by the fact that people are living much longer than ever before.

This is an article from The Economist about outsourcing, that basically argues that for some businesses, outsourcing might cause so many problems that it may not justify the benefits:

It's from about one year ago, but is still, I think, pretty current.

I recently read an article in The Week about how companies with more workers are more profitable. Companies that tried to cut workers, such as floor salespeople, actually lost money. The reason is that sales suffered because customer service suffered. Companies need to make smart choices, and find ways to cut costs that dont make workers or customers unhappy.

I don't know if this is the sort of thing you are looking for, but here is an article about companies and pensions (a form of benefits, of course) and the government.  With firms finding it harder and harder to afford to give this sort of benefit, there is a possible move towards doing this sort of hybrid public-private system.
