According to the poll, 73% of respondents wanted to improve their communication of benefits to employees. However, it remains a major sticking point, with many businesses still trying to engage and excite their employees with their perks.
Enhancing both core and wider benefits
While essential benefits like health insurance, pension (or end-of-service benefits), and paid time off remain top priorities for employees, there is a rising emphasis on wider perks to attract and retain top personnel. In 2020, the emphasis will be on implementing a larger variety of benefits such as employee welfare, inclusion and diversity, and increased flexibility and choice.
