Non-monetary perks can play a key role when it comes to attracting and retaining employees. But a recent survey suggests managers and employees may not be on the same page when it comes to which benefits are most valuable. 

Of the 270 Canadian CFOs surveyed by Robert Half, 31 per cent say they believe employees want health and wellness benefits, such as gym memberships, above all else. However, just 15 per cent of the 400 office employees surveyed say they value those sorts of benefits, while 35 per cent say they are most interested in additional vacation time.
