New Model Reward Research: Five generations in the workplace shifts the dial on benefits choices  

A one-size fits all benefits package is a thing of the past with multi-generational workforces now requiring benefits packages that suit their individual needs, according to a new report published by REBA in association with JLT Employee Benefits.

The New Model Reward 2017 research shows that one in five businesses (20.8%) said that they need to improve benefits for Generation Z employees thanks to their influx into the workforce.

And similarly, the trend of an ageing workforce is having an effect too with 14.2% reporting a need to improve benefits for older workers.

“Employers are increasingly having to tailor their rewards offering to a much wider variety of needs, depending of the life stage of the employee concerned,” said Debi O’Donovan, director at REBA.

“For younger employees that’s about help with saving for a deposit to buy a property whilst for older workers it’s about offering a range of pension options as they near retirement.”
