Morning all, a journalist @ HR Magazine is writing a story on how pensions have been found to be the number one employee benefit, even more desirable than flexible working. Why do you think this is? Is it because people are planning their life post-work more since the pandemic? Deadline is today. No essays. Just a few lines or I'm going to pull my hair out (what little I have left).

"A recent report on employee benefits showed that the 'number one employee benefit' is dependent on the age of employees; with younger staff preferring perks to save money now, median groups preferring holidays and flexible working and older groups wanting pensions - it's all based on what the employee's personal goals and lifestyle are around work and employers need to sit up and pay attention to the 'individual'."
"With the worry of Covid and the ever-changing rules of what you can or can't do, it's been difficult to plan for tomorrow, never mind 10, 20 or even 40 years ahead. Thinking about a pension gives hope that there will be a comfortable future."
"Auto-enrolment forced employers to communicate the benefit of pensions to employees more aggressively. Employers typically aren't very good at picking their own employee benefits. Pensions are typically marketed more than any other employee benefit so the data is likely to be skewed, but is the pension really the most popular?"
