It wasn’t so long ago that employee benefits were thought of as a goodwill gesture to deter staff from jumping to a competitor’s ship.
However, nowadays it goes deeper than this. Benefits have become cultural. They’re now a
litmus test for what it’s like to work at a company.
But here’s the problem: in the midst of all this innovation and media-led excitement, no one
is quite sure which of the thousands of staff benefits are actually any use.
The Great Perk Search set out to cut through this noise. From the traditional to the trendy, we
compiled a list of 50 employee perks and asked the British working population to separate the
gimmicks from the gold dust.
