North America Millennial Pay-for-Perks Survey

The North America Millennial Pay-for-Perks Survey presents how companies are offering, or are considering offering, specific benefits and perks that have been identified as effective attraction and retention incentives for Millenials and Post-Millenials (individuals between 18-34 years old)

Are you curious to see how many of your competitors provide free breakfast or lunch for their employees? What about a company car, group retreats, or business kegerator? These are some of the many benefits and perks gathered in this survey that organizations in the US and Canada are implementing to attract this younger workforce.

This new survey will help you benchmark your benefits solutions so that you can support your total rewards strategy, while considering the business goals of employee attraction, retention, and productivity.
