The Importance of Employee Benefits

“Ping-pong tables are not a recruitment strategy”

Krister Ungerbock

Krister Ungerbock in her piece ‘The Employee Perks that Actually Work’ says “Ping-pong tables are not a recruitment strategy” and highlights the importance of establishing employee benefits that matter to applicants.

At HR Heads, setting out the benefits of each role to prospective candidates is something we completely believe in.

It’s why we include them next to the salary banding on each job we are recruiting for.

Our vision at HR Heads is to be the leading specialist HR Recruitment Agency; championing engagement, thought leadership and innovation to continually exceed expectations.

To achieve this, we need the best team, and that’s why we offer great employee benefits to people joining us.

Whether it’s flexible working, free parking, quarterly and annual incentives, a meal on your birthday and an additional day of holiday for every year with the company – we want to recruit the best people, who all buy into our ethos.

We’re also very sporty and encourage the team to take time out and do activities they enjoy and when someone joins the HR Heads team, they become an ambassador for our charity of choice, Macmillan Cancer Support.

In this competitive market, we understand the value of working in partnership and through collaboration, both in helping people develop their careers and in supporting organisations to build world-class teams.

Living by our values, we are innovative and people-centric in the way we approach the market.

We pride ourselves on our reputation and having a strong, motivated team is key to achieving that.
