For employees, generous paid time off and flexibility matter more than other possible perks — and, in some cases, even money, according to a recent online poll of more than 1,500 working adults conducted by employee benefits provider Unum. These findings and more are included in the infographic below, which breaks down the top non-insurance benefits for U.S. workers across all generations.
While paid time off is at the top of the list, student loan repayment and lifestyle benefits like gym memberships and onsite healthy food options are gaining as most desired work perks.
Today, employees are seeking more work/life balance, whether that’s in traditional paid time off or paid leave benefits.

If workers aren’t getting what they want from their employer, they’ll look for better benefits elsewhere. 41% of workers said they’re likely to look for a new job with better benefits. This number is even higher among Millennials (57%) and Gen Zers (65%).
