The Value of Employee Benefits for Employees
Jaap de Jonge, Management Consultant, Netherlands
: I agree that first thinking about the various scenarios you mention is key to answering Tang's question.
As far as situation 3 is concerned, you might then start by analyzing: "What are the most important benefits for the employees I am targeting?"
The answer to this question varies across demographics, industries, geographies, etc.: A 55 year old senior manager will have different needs than a 35 year old receptionist and mother of two young children.
And she will have much different feelings about the ideal benefits package than a 22 year old fresh out of college.
