Work/life balance key, survey shows

People would rather spend more of their salary on additional holiday entitlement and private healthcare benefits for themselves rather than contributing towards costs for care of children or elderly relatives, a new survey shows.

The research, carried out by employee benefits provider The Total Remuneration Package Company, found that when asked what benefits they though important, 77 per cent of respondents mentioned private dental cover, 73 per cent mentioned variable holiday entitlement, 68 per cent mentioned private medical cover and 62 per cent mentioned life cover.

Only 31 per cent saw paying for childcare vouchers as important and only 16 per cent valued contributions to the cost of care for elderly relatives.
