Low staff appreciation of employee benefits

As many as 37% of organisations surveyed by PIFC Consulting do not believe that employees understand the value of their benefits.

"These organisations need to engage in a programme of employee financial education to ensure their benefit spend provides an effective return on investment," says PIFC. Additionally, 29% of survey respondents are not confident that their employees understand the individual elements of their benefit packages.
