Posted by Neil Fallon on Jan 15, 2021 12:05:12 PM

Selecting the right benefits to attract, retain and care for your employees isn’t as straightforward as you might think. With a plethora of options to consider, and multiple factors impacting which benefits will best suit your workforce, ensuring your benefits package is fit for purpose can be hugely complex.

The question of which benefits to offer has never been a simple one. But in the context of the global pandemic, many employers are now having to entirely rethink their benefits strategy.

The shift to remote working has made day-to-day perks such as ping pong tables, free snack bars, and modern office spaces largely irrelevant. With many people expecting to continue working from home to some extent, employers need to re-evaluate the changing needs and priorities of their workforce to ensure all benefits are delivering value to employees.

In 2021 and beyond, employers should look to deliver tangible benefits that truly support employees’ health and wellbeing. Enabling your employees to prepare for the future, look after their physical and mental health, and protect their financial stability can deliver a number of important benefits – including increased employee satisfaction and retention, improved wellbeing, enhanced productivity, and stronger appeal to new talent.

So, let’s get started. In this two-part series, we explore the value of offering the right benefits, the impacts of the pandemic on your workforce’s needs and priorities, and which benefits will be most valuable to UK workers in 2021.
