Following a nationwide poll of UK workers for its Flexible Employee Benefits Survey, the CIPP found that 85 per cent of employee respondents rate employee benefits as either 'important' or 'very important'.
Of the benefits offered by the employer sample, the most popular benefit among sales recruitment candidates and other job hopefuls is pension contributions, followed closely by childcare vouchers, with healthcare rounding out the top three.
Diana Bruce, senior policy liaison officer at the CIPP, said the economic downturn has meant it is arguably more important than ever that individuals feel they are getting the maximum value from any benefits provided in the workplace.
"The survey results show that employees feel that benefits are an important part of the remuneration package, so effective communication of what is on offer is key to ensure staff feel valued during these stringent times," she added.
Recently, David Clubb, managing director of Office Angels, said job seekers need to take all the factors of the role into account before deciding whether to apply for a position, not just salary.
