Lack of employee incentives shown in recent survey

23 March 2016

Flexible working proved to the most popular request in a survey of UK workers asking what type of employee incentives they would most like to see.

Flexitime or the option of working from home received the most votes, with 35% of respondents choosing this as their most desired incentive.

Providing these options have been attributed for boosting productivity by some companies, while also improving employees' work/life balance.

Another popular request was for a company car within the survey conducted by Direct365.

A further 14% said that their preferred option would be for gym membership, with childcare vouchers also identified by 6% of respondents.

Direct365 further stated that its survey showed the employers were also guilty of not asking their employees which incentives they most like to see included.

Making employees feel appreciated can also reward companies with increases in productivity, reduced absence, improved customer service and employee retention levels, the company stated.
