WHAT DOES A ‘GOOD’ BENEFITS PACKAGE LOOK LIKE TO YOU?
Recently I put together a Poll posing a question;
‘What is the MOST important thing developers look for when considering new opportunities?’
I asked you answered.
There was an apparent outcome telling me what’s most important to developers.
36% of you said it’s being able to attain the BEST Salary & Benefits package possible.
So for a scale-up trying to stand out from the crowd, it’s critical to offer a package that makes a developer feel valued!
I guess Salary speaks for itself… BUT I appreciate not all companies have the same budgets, so other scale-ups need to get inventive.
What else can be offered as an alternative to salary, that still makes a package attractive to the talent companies seek?
I’ve seen a lot of different approaches including;
– Education budgets
– Company holidays
– Travel / Car allowances
– Home Office Budgets
These really do help, but I feel they’re not always unique and attractive enough to make an impact.
I want to hear from my community once more though; What OTHER benefits can companies offer that turn the heads of top talent?
Which benefits are the most attractive to you? Why are most important?
