What summer work perks are job candidates looking for? Workers surveyed by staffing firm OfficeTeam said they’re most interested in flexible schedules (39%) and the ability to leave early on Fridays (30%).
However, companies have cooled off on providing these benefits. Sixty-two percent of Human Resources (HR) managers reported their organization offers flexible schedules at this time of year, down from 75% in a 2012 survey. About three in 10 employers (29%) relax their dress codes in the summer months, compared to 57% 5 years ago. Companies with shorter hours on Fridays also fell to 20%, a 43-point decline from 2012.
