Job seekers are seeing new types of benefits as remote work transforms the workplace

SAN JOSE, California – Some of the benefits that used to attract job seekers are no longer relevant as remote work continues. So employers had to listen and change with the times.

Four years ago, San Jose State’s Class of 2022 never dreamed it would be this good. There are over 27,000 job advertisements in the University’s Career Center. That’s nearly four jobs for each of this year’s nearly 7,400 graduates. That means they can make demands.

A LinkedIn survey conducted by recruitment firm Robert Half found that just over half of this year’s grads want to work remotely. That means perks like free food or on-site dry cleaning and massages lose relevance and value.

The San Francisco, Forma benefits consulting firm says companies are indeed creating a menu of benefits for employees to choose from, including help paying off student loan debt. Providing more flexible services can help fill an estimated 11 million job vacancies. Other companies, according to recruitment firm Robert Half, waive college degree requirements and offer either educational services or in-house training.
