Having a job is what pays the bills but that’s not the only meaning it can bring to life.

Quite often having a job defines who you are as a person. 

Who would know Alun Wyn Jones or Cristiano Ronaldo if they were not doing their job?

Playing gives them identity. 

As Alun Wyn Jones said: “People often ask whether you’d alter anything about your life. I can honestly say I wouldn’t change a thing.
When I retire, my CV might have a few holes, things I haven’t achieved that I would have felt I needed to do, but I won’t know if I did need to do them until I retire. I never counted on playing rugby: I was just another fat kid chasing an egg. It has gone pretty well.

Note: On 31 October 2020, Jones became the most capped international player of all time. Well done Alun!

But what about work-benefits?

Do they matter?

Well, adding benefits can increase loyalty, focus and productivity, attendance, and recruiting.

According to one survey, 60% of employees said having a benefits package is very important to their employer loyalty.

”There’s no doubt that companies have increased their focus on benefits and perks (and with 57% of job seekers counting them among their top considerations before taking a new job).” – Glassdoor

Some of the core benefits that make the biggest impact on employee satisfaction are:

  • Paid parental leave
  • On-site gym
  • Healthcare coverage and free housing
  • Pet health insurance
  • Shopping vouchers/ discount
  • Sick days
  • Retirement plan
  • Pension plan
  • Paid holidays
  • Dental insurance

Note: Check out the full results HERE, drawn from employees’ Glassdoor Benefits Reviews.

Certainly, if there are benefits involved for your family, you should consider sharing the details. Therefore, having all your work-benefits information in one place makes sense.
