Flexible working hours, drinks on Friday, and a social club won’t do it anymore.
Currently it’s hard to move people out of their roles and it takes a broad approach to lure someone versus here is an extra $10K approach. I appreciate lots of organisations simply won’t be able to offer a benefits box due to the cost and the amount of administration that goes with it.
I’m seeing some organisations allowing the employees to choose “four out of the following eight” benefits versus ‘here you go, I hope you like the ones we’ve chosen for you’
Organisations that have the capacity, budget and resource to go down this path could contemplate chatting to organisations already doing this, or could survey their workforce to get a feel on whether it interests them.
What would your four be out of these eight?
My four are in no particular order, access to an external mentor, like for like match in KiwiSaver, training budget and five weeks of leave after two years.
