Perks and benefits offered by employers in the tourism sector may not always align with what workers actually want — which means employers could be wasting scarce resources and missing out on opportunities, according to a report.

The most common benefit offered by employers is training. It’s on the menu for 92 per cent of employers in the tourism sector, according to Using Benefits to Attract Workers: The Value Proposition of Non-Wage Benefits.

But that doesn’t align with the number one benefit most valued by employees in the general population, which is health and dental.
