EXCLUSIVE: Budget is the main barrier to introducing new benefits


EXCLUSIVE: Budget is the main barrier to organisations implementing new benefits, according to research by Employee Benefits.

The Benefits research 2019, which surveyed 290 HR decision-makers and was published in May 2019, found that budget (86%) and time (40%) continue to stand as the largest barriers to implementing new benefits, having each been cited by a similar number of respondents last year. In a new option this year, 32% feel a lack of senior support hampers them in introducing new benefits.

Around 17% state a lack of engagement as a key barrier; this is a six percentage point increase since 2018.
