Charities more likely to offer flex benefits

Voluntary
sector organisations are more likely to offer flexible benefits, according to
CIPD research.

More
than half – 55 per cent – of charities offer flexible benefits, compared to 44
per cent of the private sector and three in 10 public sector bodies.

Voluntary
sector organisations are also most likely to offer mentoring or coaching for
staff, with 18 per cent of organisations in the sector providing this as a
benefit.

The
study reveals that just 10 per cent of private sector firms offer formal
mentoring or coaching schemes and no public sector organisations at all provide
these schemes as a benefit.

Just
over half of public sector organisations offer childcare vouchers to staff,
compared to only 16 per cent in the private sector and none at all in the
voluntary sector.

Almost
a quarter of public sector organisations offer private healthcare, compared to
nearly a fifth of voluntary bodies and only 9 per cent of private sector firms.

The
CIPD polled 800 organisations.  www.cipd.co.uk
