17 de August, 2021

Today everyone has more control over their careers than ever. In the process of employee onboarding people can decide whether to stay in the company or not based on different factors, among them we have the benefits and perks, so companies of different sizes have been changing their compensation plans to ensure employee retention.


First of all, we need to start differentiating benefits and perks, so you need to know that benefits are part of an employee’s salary, and perks are additional. For instance, free coffee and snacks, rewards for a particular task or everything that makes a place more enjoyable can be considered as perks.



Employee onboarding: some perks to help increase retention


Flexible work schedules 

We have left behind the traditional 9 to 5 hours schedule for work throughout the day, and one of the biggest changes among different companies and organizations has been this new shift to flexible work hours. 


You may have seen this kind of information in the Jobs descriptions and in the websites as well, and this´s been done to attract  job seekers. 



The possibility to work from home

Approximately one in five workers around the world are telecommuting according to different studies. This alternative enables employees to work at home occasionally, and it can be a great perk for keeping employees happy and engaged.
