Employee benefits improve employer image and help companies recruit new employees regardless of industry. When the competition for employees gets tougher, companies should take advantage of all opportunities to stand out. Edenred's employee benefits help thousands of companies take care of their employees' well-being and coping. At the same time, companies get an excellent opportunity to differentiate themselves from their competitors.
A positive employer image helps in the recruitment
Whether it's social media, coffee table conversations, or casual exchange of information, satisfied employees communicate their everyday life more openly in a positive tone and thereby create positive images towards their employers. In the same way as restaurants and other service providers, good employers are also gladly recommended to friends, acquaintances, and members of one's own network. Recommendations are a strong form of commitment and the more good images are associated with the company, the more likely potential new employees will be interested in the company as a place of employment.
Recently, there has been extensive discussion in the media about the labor shortage that plagues Finnish companies. A positive employer image helps companies find employees in many fields in the increasingly difficult recruitment process. The lack of skills in the Finnish labor market is also signaled by the thousands of open jobs. It is especially difficult for companies in the service industries and construction industry to find suitable staff.
Employee benefits are an easy and cost-effective way to improve the company's image as an employer. A company that concretely and financially invests in the well-being of its employees stands out when job seekers and professionals planning to change jobs or fields compare the offer.
Tax-free employment benefits are cost-effective
By offering Edenred's employment benefits, every employer can concretely show that they care about the well-being of their personnel. The goal of supporting employee well-being is easy to write in the company's strategy documents, but offering employee benefits means moving from words to actions.
Employee benefits offered to employees are often tax-free, which lowers the threshold for offering benefits. The tax exemption requires that the same benefits are offered to the entire staff. In addition, annual tax exemption maximum amounts for each employee have been defined for various benefits, the amount can reach up to thousands of euros per year. Therefore, investing in the well-being of the personnel is not only easy but also cost-effective.
