We asked job seekers for their top 3 must haves. These are the benefits they are most likely to value and consider when selecting an employer. If you don’t offer these basics, you may have trouble recruiting and retaining staff.

Additionally we asked if there was any other benefits that would be nice to have. These tend to be less costly, smaller scale benefits. Although they aren’t priorities, offering these benefits in addition to the must haves may give you a unique position and help you stand out from the crowd.
