Flexible schedule, leaving early on Fridays are employees’ best summer perks

May 07, 2019

Employees say the best summer perks are flexible schedules and early departures from work, according to survey findings released by Accountemps, a division of Robert Half International Inc. (NYSE: RHI).

The survey found that 52% of employees think flexible schedules are the best summer perk, followed by 27% who cited leaving early on Fridays.

Only 11% of employees cited a “more relaxed dress code” and even fewer said the best summer perk was an activity such as a company picnic or potluck at 10%.

What summer perks do employers actually offer?

Accountemps said a separate portion of the survey that measured the response of management found that 54% offered flexible schedules, and 53% offered a more relaxed dress code. As far as leaving early on Fridays, 32% offered that. And although it ranked relatively low for employees, 48% offered an activity such as a picnic or potluck.

Only 10% of those in management said their company does not offer any of those summer perks.

The survey included responses from more than 2,800 workers in the US and more than 2,800 senior managers in the US at companies with 20 or more employees.
