Millennial Employees Want These Benefits!

Millennials Want These Employee BenefitsUnique and quality employee benefits mean that you attract and retain top talent.

New studies have shown that employees aren’t always concerned about landing a dream job. Employees are just as jazzed about mission-driven company cultures, great career advancement opportunities, and amazing benefits and perks. Millennials are now the largest workforce demographic shaping the way we do business. This group is interested in work-life integration, making the pieces of their professional life and personal life align so that they integrate seamlessly.

If your business is still flogging that stale gym membership, note that it’s not attracting many people. More and more companies are proving better resources and benefits for their employees, as around 57 percent of people said that benefits and perks were among their top considerations before accepting a job.

The top five benefits ranked by Millennial employees are:

  • Unlimited Paid Time Off – As the line between professional and personal time is becoming increasingly blurred, giving employees more freedom over their time off can be an appealing option.
  • Ability to Work Remotely – Millennials don’t want to be chained to their desk. In keeping with the work-life integration, three out of five Millennials expect to be able to work remotely.
  • Control Over Their Schedule – Along with the telecommuting option, today’s employees want to have a flexible work day without scheduled work hours. This provides the freedom to plan their day to meet work goals and run errands!
  • Wellness Plans – Now, most mid-sized to large employers are offering some investment in wellness initiatives. Employees are looking for more than just a gym membership; they appreciate stress management plans, yoga classes, mental health support, and more a la carte options.

Additionally, the top rated perks for employees were:

  • Quarterly team-bonding day-out activities
  • Ping-pong table
  • Paid lunches
  • Computer gaming room
