A good company pension scheme is the Number One workplace benefit, according to a poll of 500 UK professionals by job board Jobsite. It topped the list of benefits, cited by 82% of those surveyed, ahead of performance-related bonuses (65%), mental health and stress support (55%) and private medical care (51%).
Jobsite CEO Nick Gold said: “Many employers believe that offering higher salaries is the way to improve the quantity and quality of applicants they receive through the door. But nowadays professionals aren’t just looking for more money in their pockets. Some are thinking more long-term, about how employers can help them reach their retirement goals sooner.”
