More Creative Job Perks Help Morale and Retention

 
 
 

Significant shares of workers say they value special perks as a way to convince them to stay with their current employer, according to a recent survey from CareerBuilder. While most employees value meaningful perks—such as increased salaries, benefits and quality-of-life improvements—others confess that they crave what can best be described as "goodies": catered lunches, massages, on-site fitness centers and other novel perks. Regardless of how substantive (or not) these nontraditional benefits appear on the surface, they do contribute to more positive morale. And that can help companies gain an edge in what's expected to be more competitive recruitment and retention environments for both the immediate and indefinite future. "What determines job satisfaction is not one-size-fits-all, but flexibility, recognition and even special perks can go a long way," says Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources at CareerBuilder. More than 2,600 hiring managers and HR professionals and nearly 4,000 workers took part in the research.
