Whitepaper: Global Employee Benefits Watch 2017/18

Thomsons' latest research has uncovered that employees' needs and expectations of benefits are not being met by multinational organisations, highlighting a widening gap between expectations and reality.

Key findings:

  • Well delivered benefits strengthen the connection between employer and employee.
  • Benefits ranked joint third out of the eight core factors that influence loyalty to an employer, coming higher than factors such as culture and nature of the role.
  • Financial support, such as saving or repaying student debt, outside of regular retirement packages, is required by employees - most significantly from younger generations.
  • 40% of employees said their benefits plan was competitive and well-funded, but it didn't meet their needs.

The whitepaper analyses the results from Thomsons' survey of more than 2,000 employees.
