Just half (54%) of U.S. employees say they believe their benefits package is better than what competitors offer, according to a Glassdoor survey. Now, to even further help people everywhere find a job and company they love, Glassdoor has launched Benefits Reviews, a new feature designed to help job seekers more easily compare benefits packages and perks at companies. By closing the information gap, Glassdoor is now bringing transparency to benefits packages and perks – the same way it has to company culture, salaries and the interview process.
Glassdoor’s new Benefits Reviews feature removes the guesswork out of comparing and researching a company’s benefits and perks, making it easier for job seekers to understand which company is the right fit based on their specific needs. For instance, job seekers will easily be able to see how employees rate a company’s overall benefits package, and see which specific benefits are most talked about for a particular company.
Through Glassdoor’s benefits review survey, employees are asked to rate their overall satisfaction with their employer’s overall benefits package and describe the best and worst facets of the benefits package. Plus, employees are asked to indicate and offer feedback on more than 50 benefits and perks their employer might offer, specific to where in the world they’re based. Categories include:
- Health and wellness (e.g., health and dental insurance)
- Financial and retirement (e.g., 401(k), pension plans)
- Family and parenting (e.g., onsite daycare, adoption assistance)
- Vacation and time off (e.g., holiday pay, sabbaticals)
- Perks and discounts (e.g., free lunches, dog friendly office, company car)
- Professional support (e.g., diversity program, tuition assistance)
Employers are also encouraged to verify and provide feedback on each specific benefit or perk their company offers, giving job seekers additional insight into the overall benefits package for a particular company.
Share a benefits review and let others know what’s working well and what needs improvement when it comes to the benefits and perks offered at your company.
