Survey: 2017 Global Benefits Attitudes Survey
- Employees – particularly younger employees – want more benefit choices. Those with choice and flexibility today are twice as likely to feel their benefit programme meets their needs.
- More than one-fifth of employees expect to still be working at age 70 or later. Over 60 per cent say their employer retirement plan is their primary means of saving for retirement.
- Employees look to their employer for support in improving their health and wellbeing, and becoming more financially secure.
- Employee engagement in wellbeing programmes remains low. Employers could likely boost engagement by designing programmes that leverage the workplace environment and promote the use of new technologies.
This latest biennial edition of the Willis Towers Watson Global Benefits Attitudes Survey analyses more than 31,000 employee responses in 22 markets.
