Retaining and attracting top talent is no small feat, especially in the modern working world. Although headlines about The Great Resignation have subsided, 1 in 3 employees still plans to find a new job in 2023, according to industry research.

This stat is a double-edged sword for recruiters. It suggests the stagnant labor market will soon become comparably fluid. Yet, it also demonstrates that workers are highly motivated to find a different employer in the new year, especially if their work life doesn’t meet expectations. To retain these high-performing workers — and recruit top talent — employers must provide meaningful incentives.

Heading into 2023, benefits that boost productivity and retention will be more critical than ever. But what qualifies as a significant benefits package? Instead of hosting Taco Tuesdays or placing foosball tables in the lounge, employers must provide life-affirming offerings that impact workers on and off the job. Here is why family-building benefits classify as essential for employees and organizational success.
