When employees are asked which benefits would be most valuable for them, a majority opts for benefits that help then to combine work with quality of life, and the value of work-life integration cuts across different generations.
As an employer, what does this mean in practice?
Flexibility and work-life integration
- outcome based environment, not presenteism
- flexible working/hours
- baseline of trust
- opportunities for learning and advancement
- supporting physical and mental health
- alignment of values
- the value of saying thank you
The majority of these benefits and work-live integration are "culture-based" and do not involve necessarily great financial investment but rather commitment and this is achievable by big organisation and small businesses alike.
