Employers try all sorts of tactics to convince employees to accept or keep a job but rarely offer salary raises. Advertisements promoting job perks have become more prevalent in the past decade, despite many being irrelevant or should be standard. This trend is frustrating for job hunters, and some feel it sends more red flags than anything else. The antiwork subreddit has created a post asking, “What’s the most insulting ‘benefit’ a job has offered you?” The post prompted numerous responses, including “free parking,” which may seem irrelevant, but is a significant issue in some areas. Many retailers and restaurants do not permit their employees to park in spaces that customers can use, which makes free parking a benefit for the employer rather than the employee.
Other examples of insulting benefits include mandatory unpaid overtime and a “casual dress code” that required specific clothing items. Employees are becoming more disillusioned with employers that offer meaningless benefits instead of fair compensation. Employers should focus on providing fair compensation and reasonable benefits that are beneficial to employees, rather than using gimmicks to attract or retain them. By doing so, employers can create a loyal and productive workforce invested in the company’s success.
In conclusion, while job perks can be appealing, many are irrelevant or should be standard, causing job hunters to become frustrated with employers who use them to avoid offering fair compensation. Employers should concentrate on providing competitive compensation and benefits to attract and retain skilled and motivated employees.
