- We will look at why great benefits make happy employees.
In an increasingly competitive marketplace, business who create a great place to work are generally able to recruit and retain top talent. Do you know how? Because they offer their employees the benefits they want. The vast majority of job seekers look for a quality benefits package, in addition to their paycheck. And while perks like free snacks, catered lunches and break-room yoga classes might receive lots of buzz in the media, they aren’t necessarily the benefits most desired by employees. A survey conducted by Fractl of 2,000 U.S. works found that when it comes to attractive benefits, better health, vision and dental insurance topped the list with 88% of respondents reporting that they would give this benefit “some consideration” (34%) or “heavy consideration” (54%) when choosing a job. Employee benefits factor in significantly to an employee’s total compensation. Benefits can increase the value of an employee’s salary by 20%… or more. Some benefits are paid fully by employers, while others require the employee to contribute toward all, or part of, the cost. Either way, employer-sponsored benefits are generally much cheaper than an individual trying to receive benefits as an individual. In this course, we will examine the most common employee benefits many employers elect to offer – health insurance, life insurance, disability insurance and retirement benefits.
