Are you wondering what your organization can offer to attract high-quality candidates? Are you lying awake at night thinking about how to shine brighter than your competition? As a leading national staffing service, PrideStaff knows what's on job seekers' minds.

Here's what employees need from you in 2022:

Remote work options. Flexible schedules and remote work arrangements are more important than ever in 2022. Health concerns, family responsibilities, work-life balance, and less commute time factor heavily in job seekers' decision-making.

Mental wellbeing benefits. Companies that offer extended coverage for mental health and telehealth benefits will have a leg up on the competition. Assisting workers as they recover from the stress and burnout of the pandemic can increase employees' productivity and profitability, as well as be an attractive perk to job seekers.

Paid time off. Workers with families need more support from employers to balance work and life, and PTO is an enormous selling point for job seekers.

Educational Perks. Research indicates that educational assistance for employees will rebound in 2022. Financial-planning seminars, tuition assistance, reimbursement for job-related training are attractive perks for job seekers.

Pet Insurance. Many families and individuals adopted pets during the pandemic, and they treat them as treasured members of the family. Innovative employers can recognize this trend by offering voluntary or subsidized pet insurance benefits along with the more traditional dental and vision.
