Wellness trend is taking over in workplaces

Professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers is doubling down on it’s commitment to employee health and wellness with a $45 million-dollar investment into its wellness program. Specifically, the wellness bonuses will help new families and emphasize PwC’s commitment to work-life balance. For new parents, PwC is now allowing staff members to work 60% of their hours while retaining 100% of their salary, for four weeks’ time, once their parental leave ends. The firm claims it is the first to “implement this approach at this level around parental leave.” According to Jennifer Allyn, Diversity Strategy Leader at PwC, ”we’re always looking for opportunities to support our people in innovative ways. When it comes to parents, we recognized that the transition back to work after a leave can be challenging. That is why we introduced a new option to phase back on a part-time schedule at full-time pay. This benefit will give both mothers and fathers more flexibility to ease back into their careers after welcoming a new child to their family.” Nationwide, companies have increased their focus on benefits and perks. According to a Harris Poll conducted on behalf of Glassdoor, nearly three in five (57%) people reporting benefits and perks being among their top considerations before accepting a job. it’s no wonder that employers have doubled down on their offerings to both recruit and retain top talent.
