Employee benefits are changing dramatically as the workplace evolves. If you ask any employer how important employee benefits are to achieving the company's objectives and goals, they will tell you that they are extremely crucial. In fact, they are growing increasingly attentive to their employees' requirements, and are attempting to match their benefit plans to those demands.
In this episode of the Vantage HR Influencers podcast, we talk about employee benefits in-depth with our guest speaker Enrique Rubio. According to Enrique, HR must be able to implement flexible work arrangements, whether employees work from home or in the office. Infact, it is the best and the most desired employee benefit that any employer can provide.
The benefits of freedom and flexibility to an employee's life are numerous. Higher job satisfaction, improved work/ life balance, and increased employee morale and motivation are examples of such benefits.
