A third of Brits feel happier when receiving 'work perks'

By KBBDaily on 19th June 2017 - 09:43am

A recent survey by BankingRefunds.co.uk has found that 36% of Brits “feel happier in the workplace when receiving perks”, such as private healthcare and being able to bring pets to the office, while 40% feel they are getting a better deal at work when offered a 'perk'.

The survey – which questioned 1,500 Brits – also found that 42% also love complimentary food as a perk, while 41% like flexible hours, 37% want to have an early finish on a Friday, and 31% would like complimentary drinks.

According to BankingRefunds.co.uk, those working in consumer-facing jobs, including plumbers, are more interested in receiving complimentary food and drink as their work perks, while those working in offices, such as HR employees and administration staff, would prefer healthcare.

“We started by looking at the response to packaged bank accounts, and how the nation feels about paying for benefits,” said BankingRefunds.co.uk managing director Carl Millar. “Our research revealed that over a third of Brits love to receive a perk even if they know that the perks are covered in the costs of their packaged bank accounts.”

He added: “Following this, we thought it would be interesting to delve deeper into this topic and look at how perks and benefits may be used in the workplace. We discovered that when employers show they are invested in employees’ welfare and happiness, they can create a culture of mutual appreciation; cultivating a workplace where everyone strives to achieve the best results possible.”
