European Employees Share the Keys to Benefits Satisfaction

A study of more than 58,000 employees across Europe reveals that employees want a larger selection of benefits and discounts and benefits that are more tailored to the individual. These findings are revealed in The Future of Work Report: Employee Benefits and Work Trends in Europe – a study exploring the effects the pandemic has had on how we work, what employees say they want, and what the future of work will be. The study was commissioned by award-winning benefits technology provider, Benify, and conducted by global public opinion and data company, YouGov.

Participants throughout Europe were asked what would make them more satisfied with their employee benefits; 53% of respondents in Sweden, 49% in France, 43% in the Netherlands, 40% in Germany, 39% in the UK, and 36% in Denmark say they want a larger selection of benefits and discounts.

Followed closely in second place, 48% of respondents in Sweden, 40% in France, 36% in the UK, 32% in Germany and Denmark, and 29% in the Netherlands say they want more individually tailored benefits.

On these findings Josefine Söderqvist, Director of Human Resources at Benify, comments:

“The pandemic has affected us all, but in different ways, and, as such, individuals want benefits that help and support their unique situation. After all, every individual has their own wants and preferences, so it’s no surprise really to discover that employees seek a greater range of benefits as well as the ability to customize their package to match their own needs.”

The survey was conducted during the first quarter of 2021 by YouGov, on behalf of Benify, in the form of an anonymous online survey with more than 58,000 participants aged 18 and older in the UK, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France and the Netherlands.
