Benefits can mean the difference between loving your job and hating your job. In fact they matter more than money to a lot of people. A 2015 Glassdoor survey found that 79% of respondents would prefer additional benefits to a higher salary. That doesn’t surprise us. After all, can a fat paycheck really make up for missing out on the important things in life, like spending time with your children or taking care of an ailing spouse or parent? How happy can you be at work if you have overwhelming personal problems that make it impossible for you to do your job? How happy can you be at work when your employees are overwhelmed by personal problems? These days, benefits are about more than just providing the basics, like dental coverage. Progressive organizations are addressing all aspects of wellness, as well as work-life balance.
