Expand the View of Total Rewards to Strengthen The Employee Value Proposition

One in three employees say they are satisfied with their employers, pay and benefits, but are still considering leaving (Mercer Global Talent Trends, 2017). Not great odds for employers who need to build a workforce for the future in a tightening labor market.

For HR leaders to effectively attract and keep the talent they need, it’s not enough to offer just great pay and benefits. Employees in high demand expect and need more from their employers.

That’s why HR leaders need to expand their view of employee rewards by considering additional programs that differentiates their employee value proposition.

Create A Rewards Portfolio that Supports The Health, Wealth and Careers of Employees

Employers that consider more than just pay and benefits in their total rewards strategy have the opportunity to strengthen their employee value proposition and inspire higher levels of motivation, productivity and workplace satisfaction.

Research shows that:

  • 79% of adults trust their employers to give sound, independent advice on planning, saving and investing.1
  • 78% of employees would work on a contract basis and 51% want more flexible options.2
  • 51% of employees want more equity in pay and promotion decisions.2
  • Employees with a strong wellbeing have 41% lower health costs, 35% lower turnover and 31% higher productivity.3

In addition, creating a purpose-driven work environment gives employees a chance to contribute to a greater purpose. Design career and wellbeing programs that enhance their experiences at work and at home. The employers that do this effectively can create and tap into the power of productive and thriving employees.
