Nearly two thirds of full time working Brits would rather have a higher wage instead of work perks, according to a recent survey conducted by conference calling provider, Conference Genie.
According to the research conducted on 2,000 full-time workers based in the UK, the main day-to-day work perks that employees want are free food (38%) and flexitime (28%). But ultimately, 62% of UK works still prefer a higher wage over work perks.
The results show that desired work perks differ when it comes to age groups, but they do share one similarity. 18-24 year-olds seem to be the most materialistic, as having a clothing allowance and getting a work tablet/phone come in their top three desired perks. However, free food reigns as the top everyday work perk for all age groups.
