Employers are responding to the risk of burnout among employees and improving working conditions.
Employers confidently declare that they value employment that allows for a dignified salary, but not at the expense of mental and physical health, family life, and personal values. ADP research shows that 33% of people say that flexible working hours are important to them, as well as enjoying their work (32%). However, the possibility of advancement is “only” important to 23%.
Therefore, employers offer flexible working hours, the possibility of hybrid work, support for young mothers, e.g. a nursery close to the office, or other benefits. Rewarding employees is already a standard phenomenon, although employers differently interpret the attractiveness of the benefits offered. A solution to this type of problem is a cafeteria system. This is a benefit system that has several dozen benefits from which the employee can choose the one that he finds most attractive. This is a large flexibility of this solution, every employee has different aspirations, is guided by different values in life and different factors motivate him to act. Giving the employee the choice of benefits improves the relationship between the employee and the employer, and increases the employee’s work efficiency.
Among popular benefits are professional medical care, financing trips, or gaming services such as PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live.
The cafeteria system offer adapts to the needs of the market and employees, this is shown by the introduction of gaming services benefits, which are gladly used by IT employees.
