Creating a comprehensive benefits plans for the modern workforce is tricky. Different employees will be motivated by different things. The same employee could even be motivated by different benefits at different points in their careers. Remember this while creating a benefits package is essential to ensure you can keep top talent at your company.

For starters, obtaining top talent through recruiting should be done with ensuring your employees are compensated financially in a competitive way in the market. Whether this be with their hourly pay/salary, the organization would not want competitors “poaching” their employees with higher pay throughout their career.

Moving beyond the pay itself, there are many things that motivate employees. According to Herzberg’s Theory of Motivation and many others, it is important for organizations to motivate employees with things outside of tangible rewards. Being able to show employees how they can advance throughout the company (also typically resulting in higher pay) would help motivate some employees. Ensuring younger employees have access to a tuition reimbursement program can motivate employees to hone their skills in hopes of advancing through the company. Other employees with family may be motivated by flexible time off for children/emergencies or on site child care to put their mind at ease throughout the workday.

What an employer should be cautioned with is to not provide “empty” benefits to employees. According to Forbes Coaches Council (2018) benefits such as a relaxed work environment consisting of foosball tables or unlimited time off requests can actually harm their employees. It may make it more daunting for an employee to ask for additional time off and the foosball table doesn’t offer anything other than a short break from their job which they will soon be back to completing.

An organization that understands that employees are their greatest asset, will find a way to offer generous benefits. Offering employees healthcare and wellness benefits, 401k, etc. are critically important however, intangible benefits that support work and like balance, are immeasurable and sometimes overlooked.

Many cybersecurity professionals are able to achieve a very real work/life balance. They are able to stay at 40 hours a week (often less) and enjoy their time away from the office. Many are satisfied with the arrangement that they have: They provide immense value for their employers during the day, are well paid for it, and have the autonomy to enjoy their personal lives largely interrupted (, n.d.).

The benefits plan design includes the following: A competitive salary and a performance-based bonus and merit structure. Disability insurance/FMLA, paid maternity leave, paid adoption leave, paid paternity Leave, 15 PTO days with the option for additional PTO buy or sell up to 40 hours during yearly open enrollment at a daily rate X the number of days purchased. A thrift plan with employer match, dollar for dollar up to 6%, and a pension plan. The amount would be deducted from the employees pay over the course of the year. Commuter benefits (pre-taxed), backup childcare assistance by partnering with an external network of service providers. Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The benefits plan also includes flexible work schedules: 4 -10-hour work weeks, hybrid work, fully remote options, depending on the role, business need and circumstances, split and non-traditional work hours. Employees can opt into Identity theft protection coverage, educational assistance.

A robust and comprehensive benefits plan is not only competitive but demonstrates the employer’s commitment to the organizational culture by supporting employees wholistically.
