A recent survey conducted by Crone Corkill, an Advantage Professional company, of 550 office support professionals within London, found that bonuses and reward- based pay are the most influential factors when deciding to apply for a job.

With over half of the vote, bonuses and reward-based pay were the clear winners. Pension schemes took second place, with just under a quarter of respondents marking this as their number one incentive. Healthcare came third with 20%, while just over two per cent said a company car and gym membership is the all important clincher for them.

Gabrielle Drake, Associate Director of Crone Corkill, an Advantage Professional company, commented:”Gone are the days when salary was enough to recruit and retain top talent for your business; providing attractive employee benefits is now just as important.”

Today, companies are increasingly working to understand what makes their employees tick. This allows them to create an optimum benefits package that attracts and retains a wide range of individuals.
