Non-traditional versus traditional employee benefits
A perceived divide between certain, established benefits provided to employees and ‘newer’ benefits. Traditional benefits are typically medical and health-related, including life insurance, private medical insurance and pension contributions. Non-traditional benefits include newer financial incentives, such as childcare assistance, as well as workplace benefits including access to healthy food and on-site sports facilities.
Some people think that non-traditional benefits are correlated more strongly with perceived organisational support (PSO) among staff members.
