Creating a Benefits Package that will motivate and attract

A few months ago I had a client who was looking to put together a benefits package that would appeal to all of his staff. He wanted to know what the people wanted and so we put together an internal staff survey and I also posed the question to the audience of my Facebook page. The responses were really interesting but the important thing that came across was that different things appealed to different people and that “no one size fits all” when it comes to benefits packages. 


The client in question decided to put together a list of benefits and allowed their employees to choose the benefits that most appealed to them. These of course included the usual options of pensions and health insurance. However, the other options tended to fall into 3 categories- family life (flexible working hours and free/discounted childcare), recognition for hard work (vouchers for hitting targets, staff member of the month, paid sabbaticals, early finishes), and lifestyle benefits (discounted gym memberships, massage/nail technician visits, paid social events, extra holiday days).

When designing a benefits package it is important to involve your staff members to ensure that what you are offering will motivate them. It is also important to note that a good benefits package can not only motivate existing staff but can also help you to attract new members of staff to your business.

What our clients say

  • As with any business the right staff will make or break it, so recruiting the right people is vital. We met with a number of recruitment companies including Lyndsey who had been recommended to us via a Business Management Consultant. It became very apparent early on that Lyndsey was much more meticulous than her competitors. She made a point of delving deep into our company, the new position, the existing team and the environment into which the new starter would be coming into. We have recently awarded the position to an individual we believe to be a great asset to the company.

From understanding our brief, through candidate selection and reccomendation and on to offer and employment, Lyndsey has been exceptional. Her communication has been faultless. Lyndsey has helped us recruit a fantastic Business Development Manager who is an amazing fit for our business. We are now looking at who else she can recruit for us.

  • In my recent career search, I have had the unfortunate experience of dealing with recruitment companies who treat the candidates like second class citizens, never returning a call or email and even worse not knowing their client, how their business works and which transferable skills they are looking for. From the moment I applied for this position Lyndsey exceeded all my expectations, it wasn't a case of sending my CV straight to the client, I received an email explaining when she would be in touch to discuss my application and actually called me to do this. Lyndsey made the whole process very clear and amazed me with her knowledge and passion for her client when we met to see if I would fit in with her clients culture. This passion she demonstrated was infectious and I was delighted to meet the client and accepted the position.
