Employees have realized that certain benefits matter more than others in the coronavirus era.
What do employees really want? That’s the question these days, with companies scrambling to fill their ranks as the world strives for normalcy as the pressing threat of COVID-19 lessens thanks to vaccination. KB Staffing works closely with the Polk County workforce in order to understand their needs, and we have some suggestions for employers trying to attract qualified applicants.
Give ’Em What They Want
If you are an employer looking for workers these days, you may have noticed that a lot of people are hesitant to return to a traditional work environment. KB Staffing has some insight to offer in terms of what potential employees are seeking in terms of benefits nowadays.
- Remote working. So many people were forced to work from home over the past year, that it became necessary to figure out the practical logistics of this for many companies. Now that we know how many jobs can easily be performed remotely, more people would like to have that option available to them.
- Useful benefits. After a global medical crisis, people are more acutely aware of the need for real benefits, such as affordable medical insurance, mental health care and generous parental leave.
- Flexibility. We all have lives outside of work and different priorities. Employees want to be able to take care of the important things in their lives without fear of losing their jobs. Flexibility in scheduling and job duties can help workers juggle their various responsibilities more effectively.
