UK employees unhappy about benefits package

Almost
a third of UK employees feel their benefits package isn’t good enough while
more than half think they have too little choice when it comes to the package
they receive.

A
new report by consultants Aon shows that employees are largely in the dark about
what British employers actually offer in benefits packages.

The
findings reveal that although average spending on benefits is likely to be
approximately 30 per cent of salary expenditure, nine out of 10 UK employees
think it’s much less.

Paid
leave and pensions are seen as the most important benefits with 83 per cent off
staff wanting paid time and 76 per cent citing pension provisions as crucial.

More
than half of those surveyed were willing to forego benefits for greater cash,
the remaining 47 per cent wanted less take-home pay and more benefits.
