Just over a quarter (28%) of employers believe that their employees do not fully understand the benefits that are available to them, according to research by industry body Grid.
In survey of 1,675 HR decision makers and employees also found that 10% of employers believe their workforce is only aware of some, and not all, of their benefits.
When it comes to making employees aware of what benefits are on offer, just over a quarter of organisations (26%) send out a form of communication quarterly, 21% communicate benefits once a year and just over one-third (38%) of employers communicate details of their benefits when there is a change to the terms and conditions of a particular benefit. Additionally, almost one-third (29%) inform new employees of the benefits when they are first employed.
