How are employers planning to lure employees back to the office?

As employers ask their staff to return to the office after an extended period of remote working during the pandemic, many employees are understandably hesitant. That’s where incentives like four-day work weeks and lunch subsidies can make a difference. However, they have to be lucrative to make sense for all parties.

When exploring this trend, you’ll also learn more about the ‘Great Resignation’ and how it is affecting employee benefits regarding talent attraction and retention. Additionally, this section ends with tips on facilitating a smooth return to the office.

What role does HR tech play in the areas of employee monitoring?

HR technology and tools continue to advance. So much so that AI and algorithms are now integral when it comes to predicting, anticipating, and deciding what’s happening for staff. This section also sheds light on workplace surveillance, covering everything from what it is and why employers are interested in implementing it to how employees feel about it and more. If you’re wondering how to get employees to accept new technology at work, the tips at the end of this section will help.

Why are companies adopting a holistic approach to employee benefits?

From the impact of the global pandemic to rising inflation and the cost of living crisis, there are many reasons why more and more employees are getting burnt out. Aside from the aforementioned factors, employees have to deal with the usual life stressors as well. As more people realize the importance of the mind-body connection, employers are turning to benefits that involve more than just physical health as a result.

While awareness is certainly a start, it takes more than understanding the importance of holistic health and well-being to offer employee benefits that address the issue. Our report explores this trend in greater depth as well as provides tips on supporting your workforce’s well-being.

Is it necessary to consider Gen Z’s concerns about sustainability?

With Gen Z entering the workforce, it’s imperative for employers to become familiar with their mindset. Essentially, values matter to the newest generation, and employers who fail to understand this are likely to lose to their more forward-thinking competitors in the ‘War for Talent’. Fortunately, there are benefits that companies can focus on to meet Gen Z’s expectations, such as green benefits.

Greenifying your employee benefits isn’t as difficult as it sounds when you know what employees are after. Paid volunteering days and carpooling are just some examples of how companies can incorporate green initiatives into their employee benefits offerings, which we provide tips on in this section.

Where are we headed when it comes to fairness and equality?

A shocking 80% of staff view their work environment as ‘unfair’. This section of the report brings various layers of fairness and equality to light, addressing important topics like:

  • What fairness and equality in the workplace is (and why it is important)?
  • New questions of fairness emerge in the remote work era
  • How the gender wage gap remains a barrier for female employees
  • Moving towards an intersectional approach to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives

If you’re wondering how to increase feelings of fairness and equality at work, this section will give you plenty of ideas to get started.

Along with diving deeper into the aforementioned global employee benefits trends in 2022 and offering practical tips, our report also provides real-world business examples, case studies, key insights from Pacific Prime’s employee benefits specialists, and more.
