per cent of professionals claim their current benefits package played no part
in encouraging them to take their existing position, according to a new survey.
research – by Recruitment Consultant Joslin Rowe – aimed to see what benefits
have the greatest impact on staff retention and to compare the employees’ views
with market trends.
52 per cent said a combination of salary, benefits and bonus was most important
● 28 per cent who saw salary and benefits as most important
● 11 per cent preferred salary and a bonus
● 7 per cent cited salary alone as most important.
all, 84 per cent said their current benefits package played no part in
encouraging them to take their existing position and only 18 per cent said they
would move jobs for a larger benefits package with a lower salary.
in six said they would not be happy to move to a company that did not offer a
benefits package, although of the 12 per cent who participate in a company
share scheme, not one said that this would deter them from seeking employment
