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
Subsidised gym membership
Cycle to work scheme
Annual personal development vouchers
Rewards such as high street 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.
