New Research from Cyclescheme Uncovers Employee Happiness Trends in the UK
According to new research by Cyclescheme, a Blackhawk Network business based in the UK, employers are using ineffective quick-fix perks in attempts to boost employee morale amidst political and economic uncertainty. These one-off benefits can include things like beers in the afternoon, team lunches or early office closures.
The research found that of the employees surveyed:
- Only 15 percent of those who received one-off perks over the past year said they would like to receive more of them.
- Four in 10 said one-off perks don’t improve their long-term happiness at work.
- Thirty-four percent would respond more to chances to exercise, 28 percent would respond more to time to switch of mentally and 37 percent would appreciate opportunities for a greater work-life balance.
