Skilled Craftsmen: Studies on Comprehensive Benefits

When you receive a job offer, do you look at the pay or benefits first? According to Glassdoor’s 2015 Employment Confidence Survey, 60% reported that benefits and perks are a major factor when considering a job offer. While you should certainly consider pay, it’s important to consider the entire compensation package before making a decision.

According to an employee benefits study from Fractl, many employees place the highest value on flexible hours, paid vacation time, and other perks after health insurance. Many respondents also said that they would give more consideration to a job offer with more benefits and lower pay than a higher paying job with fewer benefits.

Healthcare, for example, has significant value to an employee and their family. It is the most expensive benefit for employers to provide. The average cost for companies to provide health care each year is $11,394 while paid time off only costs about $2,310 for two weeks of paid vacation.

At Construction Labor Contractors, we care for our craftsmen on and off the job, ensuring they can care for their family, plan for retirement and take vacations. INFOGRAPHIC: Why You Should Work for CLC

Health Coverage – Our benefits package also makes us more competitive and sets us apart from other construction labor staffing companies who only offer competitive pay. The best part is that all craftsmen qualify and can select the plan that works best for them.

Direct Deposit – To ensure employees receive on-time and accurate payments, we offer direct deposit. In addition, our payroll is in-house, so if any questions or issues arise, employees can come directly to us.

Additional Perks – CLC will help you save for retirement with a 100% match up to 4% on 401K accounts. Beyond health coverage, we also provide personal time off, paid vacation and recruiting bonuses.
