Medical. Dental. Retirement. Flextime. A ping pong table in the breakroom?
When it comes to attracting the best professional talent in SoCal, which benefits are indispensable – and which are a waste of your resources? Here are the benefits most likely to attract top workers in a tough hiring environment.
- Health Care. Health care remains the benefit most often leveraged for recruiting highly skilled workers in SoCal. Although the Affordable Care Act has made it easier for employees to seek health coverage on their own, top talent still seeks out comprehensive healthcare coverage that allows them to focus on their work without worrying about medical bills or complicated deductibles.
- The recent economic recession has shaken up retirement for workers of every age, but especially for millennials – those workers between the ages of 20 and 35 who contain the “rising stars” in every industry. By offering generous retirement plans and policies, you allow your best workers to focus on their current projects, confident that their work will pay off both now and in the future.
- Professional Development. Top talent reaches the “top” by always seeking more: more knowledge, more skills, more understanding. Top candidates are eager to learn and excited to stay on the cutting edge of their respective industries. As a result, making solid professional development support a key part of your compensation package can be one of the best ways to get these outstanding professionals into your organization. Consider “putting your money where your mouth is” in the form of paid travel to conferences, incentives for presenting or compensation for part or all of the tuition required for top performers to return to school now and then to stay sharp.
- Flexible Work Options. Top performers know that creativity doesn’t come on demand. By offering flexible work options like flextime or telecommuting, you’ll be supporting these creative professionals whenever and wherever inspiration strikes them – boosting their productivity and allowing them to boost your company’s bottom line in return.
