How to Use Employee Benefits to Retain a Winning Team and Workplace Culture
Today, I have the pleasure of speaking at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Small Business Summit about using employee benefits to retain a winning team and workplace culture. During the session, my fellow panelists and I will outline how small businesses can compete with large companies, and what kinds of benefits programs are most important to employees. For those who can’t join us in D.C., below is a preview of what I plan to speak about this afternoon.
When it comes to employee happiness, it’s no secret that benefits are high on the list of what matters. In a recent survey from Glassdoor, 57% of employees report that benefits and perks are a major factor in considering whether to accept a job offer. Another 80% would choose additional benefits over a pay raise. Other reliable sources, like the Employee Benefit Research Institute, reach similar conclusions in their studies.
