The CIPP – Chartered Institute of Payroll and Professionals has found that over 70% of organisations are now offering some elements of flexible benefits to their workers. This is expected to increase during the course of 2012.
From the survey carried out, over 80% of workers believe flexible benefits are “very important” and at the very least “important”.
Amongst the benefits measured of importance to workers, childcare vouchers were deemed as one of the most important flexible benefits.
With the state of the economy it is important that workers are getting maximum value from flexible benefits provided in the workplace. Staff need to feel valued at this moment in time and it is important that organisations communicate effectively and demonstrate empowerment and support. This is key for the motivation of staff and businesses receiving productivity.
The study has also found that with the advancement of technology, businesses are in a better position in allowing employees to work remotely. This supports the flexibility policies of companies which is apparently on the rise.
