Events Industry Benefits

Event Industry Benefits

With talent in the events industry having never been in such short supply, businesses have become more inventive in how they create the most attractive working environment for their employees.

There is huge upward pressure on salaries throughout the industry, although most businesses have held back from awarding large “across the business” pay rises – instead preferring to offer greater flexibility and broader career opportunities.

One of the growing trends is flexible / home working – with this now seen as a normal working practice by most employees.

Other benefits offered include;

  • Car or car allowance

  • Holidays that can be flexed up or built upon with additional year’s service

  • Company related bonus

  • Days off for your birthday

  • Free fruit

  • Subsidised gym membership

  • Cycle to work scheme

  • Eye care

  • Annual personal development vouchers

  • Duvet days

  • Rewards such as high street vouchers

  • Childcare vouchers

  • Time off (fully paid) to complete charity work

Often a missed “benefit” is the working culture within an organisation, but this is cited as one of the most important factors when a candidate is deliberating on numerous offers.


Culture is hard to quantify, but interviewers who present their company in the most positive way (explaining the benefits / career opportunity / culture etc) and conduct the interview in a more “conversational manner” often have the greatest success in securing candidates they offer roles to.


If you would like more detailed feedback on how your salaries and benefits compare with the rest of the market please feel free to call one of our team.
