CANADA: On the job perqs are sought by majority of employees

Only 20% of Canadian employees enjoy corporate wellness programs that include such perks as fitness and nutritional coaching, gym memberships and opportunities for professional growth, according to a new poll.

Almost 70% of 2,857 Canadians who participated in a recent online poll at Monster.ca said they wished their employers offered such incentives. Twenty percent of those who already receive corporate wellness programs really appreciate them. And 10% of Canadians said such programs are a waste of resources and would not be interested even if their employer provided such services.

"Canadian businesses lose billions of dollars every year on sick days, employee absenteeism and stress leaves," said Gabriel Bouchard, vice president and general manager, Monster Canada. "With the labour shortage already affecting much of Canada, it will be interesting to see the rise in corporate wellness programs and other workplace benefits."

Meanwhile, in a separate Monster.ca poll of 3,594 participants, less than 20% of Canadians reported receiving pay increases or having flexible scheduling and other work/life balance initiatives. Most respondents said their employers are doing very little to retain them.

"The workplace has become increasingly competitive," said Bouchard. "In this new labour market, the power now shifts from traditional employers to job seekers. Employers will soon have to provide incentives to retain their employees or risk disruptions in productivity."
