About This Statistic

This statistic shows the most important employment factors when choosing jobs among workers worldwide in 2014. During the survey, 84 percent of respondents said that salary, benefits and financial incentives would influence them to choose one job over another.

Employers are increasingly trying to attract employees with wellness incentives. In 2015, corporate spending on wellness incentives in the United States reached 693 U.S. dollars per employee. The majority of companies fund wellness programs themselves, however, around 11 percent are paid for by employee contributions.
