However, only one-third of respondents aged 25-34 said the same. Furthermore, just 7.1 percent of 25 to 34-year-olds said perks were not important in their job evaluation, compared to almost double the response from 45 to 54-year-olds.More than 45 percent of workers reported already having a casual dress code in their workplace, making it the most common incentive offered by employers besides salary and benefits.
Just one-third of those surveyed said their employers offered flexible or remote work options, and just one-fifth said they had access to work-sponsored professional development opportunities. The least-offered perks were free food and catered lunches (12.6 percent), free gym memberships (11.3 percent), and recreational games (8 percent).“Offering better perks at work can help companies attract top talent in the job market, but employers still must align such perks with employee preferences and motivations to see an increase in retention and lower costly turnover,” said Puckett. “Most people spend a significant amount of their lives at work, so creating a positive and open environment goes a long way.”The survey gathered responses from 486 adult office workers between the ages of 25 and 54.
