For all the perception gaps between employers and employees on HR/benefits matters like retirement readiness and work-life balance, it’s nice to come across something that both sides can agree on — no matter how small.
So, it made me smile to see new survey results from OfficeTeam that show employees’ most coveted summer benefits — flexible schedules (41%) and leaving work early on Fridays (28%) — also are the ones that are most offered by employers (75% and 63%, respectively).
Hooray for small victories!
Among other warm-weather perks employees favor, 11% cite a company picnic and 5% say a more relaxed dress code — offered by 28% and 57% of employees, respectively.
I personally would prefer a company-sponsored trip to the Canary Islands, but I realize I’m aiming high on that one. Leaving early on Fridays would be a lovely consolation prize.
