A creative approach to benefits is valued by employees
Respondents highlighted the increasing value of flexible and voluntary benefits. The top five were broadly in keeping with the traditional benefits on offer to employees, covering:
- Annual leave was the only benefit offered by 100% of respondents.
- 98% offered pensions.
- 92% offered childcare vouchers
- 90% offered Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)
- 86% offered Occupational Sick Pay
More surprisingly, 74% offer a bike to work scheme and 75% offer private medical insurance, whilst 41% offer gym memberships and 54% offer health check-ups, illustrating the different approaches organisations take when it comes to defining wellbeing in the workplace.
