Millennials in the workplace has been a trending topic for the last several years.  As we enter 2017, we are looking at employee perks that millnnials are most interested in:

  1. Comprehensive Benefits Package – Safeguards of health and financial well-being provided through employer-sponsored health and retirement plans might sound like more traditional company benefits, but they matter no less to millennials. Healthcare and financial perks — like dental, vision and 401(k) plans — are key to keeping even this youngest segment of workers in place. And the sooner the benefits kick in, the better.
  2. Flexibility – In a survey of 9,700 full-time employees across eight of the largest global economies, flexibility was listed as a top job benefit. An additional millennial-specific survey  supported that conclusion, with 32 percent of respondents saying they expect their working hours to be mainly flexible and 40 percent expecting their hours to be mainly regular with some flexibility.
  3. Family-Friendly Policies- With millennials almost twice as likely to have a spouse or partner working full time than boomers — according to the EY survey —  implementing family-friendly policies has become increasingly important. The survey found millennials around the world are more likely than other generations to cite paid parental leave as an important benefit, as well as onsite or subsidized child care.
  4. Concierge Benefits – From dry cleaning to catering, concierge benefits and lifestyle perks allow millennials to spend less time taking care of errands on their personal time.
