The 15 most popular employee perks

A recent article appearing in "Employee Benefit News" made for some interesting reading. A poll of 1,227 working adults from benefits provider Unum, found that the most desired perks for employees have to do with flexible work options and absence management, rather than things like onsite gyms and pet-friendly offices.

Offering the survey-takers 15 different non-insurance or retirement-related benefits, the company asked them to choose their top five options. Coming in at number one, not surprisingly, was paid family leave garnering the top spot in 58% of respondents answers, but closely followed by remote/flexible working options. The following is the full list results, ranked by popularity.

  1. Paid Family Leave

  2. Flexible/Remote Work Options

  3. Professional Development

  4. Sabbatical Leave

  5. Gym Membership or Onsite Fitness Center

  6. Student Loan Repayment

  7. Onsite Healthy Snacks

  8. ID Theft Protection

  9. Financial Planning Resources

  10. Fitness Goal Incentives

  11. Public Transit Assistance

  12. Pet Insurance

  13. Pet Friendly Offices

  14. Health Coaching

  15. Dedicated Volunteer Hours
