What are
Fringe Benefits?

Employee fringe benefits are the additional perks that companies provide to support the personal interests, hobbies, or lifestyle choices of their team. These go beyond the regular salary and are powerful tools that can unlock the full potential of your workforce.

These benefits come in various forms, including wellness programs, transportation subsidies, meal allowances, and fitness stipends, just to name a few. The core principle is to enhance your employees’ quality of life while making your company a more attractive place to work.

Fringe benefits play a crucial role in talent acquisition and retention.

They not only enhance the overall compensation package but also reflect a company’s commitment to employee well-being.

Types of Fringe Benefits

The beauty of fringe benefits is that this category can be very open-ended. Each employee is unique, and their interests, hobbies, and choices are as well. The goal with any fringe benefit program is to give employees lots of options to choose from, so they can pick what works best for them.

Fringe Benefits vs. Core Benefits: What’s the Difference?

While both fringe and core benefits are important, they serve different purposes.

Core benefits include things such as health and dental insurance, vision care, or paramedical coverage. These benefits keep employees healthy.

Fringe benefits on the other hand are additional perks that can enhance job satisfaction and employee engagement. They look after an employee holistically, both inside and outside of work hours. They can be a powerful tool for businesses to differentiate themselves in the competitive job market.
