    About The Event

    Are you looking for a competitive edge to attract and retain talent in 2023? Lifestyle benefits could be the answer. Lifestyle benefits are non-salary benefits that support employees' lives and goals outside of the workplace. Harvard Business Review states that 60% of employees consider lifestyle benefits and perks as a major factor that influences the acceptance of a job while 80% of employees would choose additional benefits over a pay raise.

    We expect the trend of lifestyle benefits to increase as the workforce looks for ways to cope with the rising cost of childcare, mental health issues, and inflation. Lifestyle benefits can include student loan reimbursement, wellness allowance, child care assistance, and more.

    Join the webinar on April 13th to hear from a panel of lifestyle benefit experts and solutions. We will review various types Lifestyle benefits, trends, cost, and considerations.
