How important are employee benefits?

Motivated employees are one of the greatest assets to any successful organisation, so it's vital to make sure they're happy at work. Offering a wide range of benefits shows how much you value your people and that you're invested in their future at your company.

Attracting the best talent

According to a survey conducted by PageGroup, 78% of candidates would be more likely to apply for a job if the company offered employee benefits. In a competitive job market, you want to attract the best talent by advertising a variety of employee benefits. Offering an array of company perks can make the difference when a candidate is deciding between two jobs of a similar salary.


Now that you've got the best candidates in their field, you want to make sure they feel valued and supported. There are many ways to do this but offering employee benefits is one of the most important. Company cars or leased cars are one of the top five most sought-after company benefits, alongside flexible working and the option to work from home.


Good employee engagement leads to a more positive working environment. You'll want to make sure your employees stay at your business where you can continue to help them grow and develop. When employees feel their employer is invested in their future, and values the work they do, they're less inclined to jump ship.

Carol Henry, Arnold Clark's Group People Director, who has over 20 years of HR experience, said:

'More and more organisations are offering employee benefits because they're seeing such positive outcomes as a result. It's important to ask your people what they want and try out different options until you find what works for your business'.
