Statistics tell us that employees in the UK are no longer motivated by financial reward alone; in fact flexible working has become a popular request by many and recent research found that 47% of people questioned considered this the most desirable workplace benefit.
But what of those many small and medium-sized businesses that can’t always offer flexible options? Luckily, 62% of respondents surveyed by CV Library would include company benefits and perks in their decision to find their next job. In fact 13% would turn down a job if the organisation did not offer workplace perks and 71% of respondents believe all organisations should offer perks.
It is this requirement that a recent MetLife UK report focused on. Surveying nearly 34,000 businesses employing 3.3million people. Results showed that more than half (53%) of these small and medium-sized enterprises were looking to expand the benefits they offer as they focus on recruitment and retention.
Many are recognising that appreciated employees are happy employees and with the right benefits package you can retain your best people. You might even save some money if your perks package is tailored to be as attractive as a higher salary, at a fraction of the cost.
