Personal Group’s latest report "Let's Talk Benefits" looks at how employees measure the value of the employee benefits available to them and how they would like benefits to be communicated to them.
Eight in ten workers are not making the most of their employee benefits package and blame employer communication. Half admit to taking active steps to measure the value of the package they are entitled to.
Employers could do more by:
Easy calculation of the value of benefits
Offering more information on the benefits package
Giving more detail on specific products
Although a benefits book or staff handbook is both the top way employees wanted to be informed and the most common method used by employers, workers second and third preferences were for a staff newsletter or annual benefits fair, while bosses chose to send out company-wide emails or use promotional posters.
