The quality of the employee benefits packages which companies offer needs to be flagged up as part of their efforts to recruit talented new staff members, an expert suggests, which may interest those focusing on their career development.

Rather than just informing prospective job candidates about the salary which could be available to them, Matt Duffy, partnerships manager at

Lorica, believes firms need to provide details of employee benefits too.
He said: “They need to communicate their benefits more effectively, so if they already have a generous benefits package then they need to communicate the total reward when they are making an offer to a candidate.”

Discussing cases which his own organisation has recently come across, Mr Duffy stated that some employers who are looking to take on new staff are querying how their benefits packages could be enhanced.
April saw a 14 per cent increase in year-on-year online recruitment activity, it was recently noted by Monster in its Employment Index.
