Hampton, N.H. (April 28, 2015) – CAREEREALISM, a career advice and employment branding site, released the results of its 2015 employee perks vs. company culture survey that polled its 1,000,000 monthly readers. Of the 1,000,000 monthly readers, over 800 people took the survey. Readers were prompted to respond to what is more important to them, company culture or employee perks. CAREEREALISM Media compiled the responses and found these results:
  • 66% of the participants said that a strong company culture is more important to them (company’s belief/values)
  • 26% of the participants voted in favor of employee perks (flexible schedule, ping pong tables in office, etc.)
  • 8% of the participants did not know the difference between employee perks and company culture.
The results above demonstrate how important it is for a company to focus on building their culture by expressing their beliefs and values. Millennials are more focused on working for a company they can relate too, somewhere that shares the same passion they do, professionally. “Showing off your cool new office and smoothie bar are no longer the best way to attract top talent,” said CAREEREALISM founder and CEO, J.T. O’Donnell “Today’s sophisticated job seeker knows a ‘snow job’ when they see one. Yes, the perks might get them to look at your company, but their next move is to, “get under the hood and kick the tires” before they decide to apply.” According to O’Donnell, job seekers will search for information about a company online. Professionals want to read stories and watch videos about a company they are interested in to help them understand what it is like to work with them. If a job seeker likes what they see when researching the company, that will motivate them to submit their application.
