How To Create Benefits That Employees Love
Leveraging competitive benefits that appeal to everyone is a challenge for a lot of HR pros today. According to Amy Spurling, the founder and CEO of Compt, “A lot of companies have really great programs but when they start looking at utilization, it’s usually around 3 to 5% per thing that you’re offering. It is very low. And so you’re spending across each individual thing and getting incredibly low utilization. The challenge is then to reach more people and keep more people engaged without cutting benefits.” A former CFO and COO, Amy shares strategies for increasing engagement while offering employees the opportunity to make personalized decisions that are best for them.

“Some companies get into ‘what else’ benefits – things they use to compete for talent. Really large companies may have a list of thousands of benefits employees could use. The challenge is that it’s noise, and employees don’t use any of it.”
