Fringe Benefits or Perqs/Perks

Employee benefits and (especially in British English) benefits in kind (also called fringe benefits, perquisites, perqs or perks) are various non-wage compensations provided to employees in addition to their normal wages or salaries. Where an employee exchanges (cash) wages for some other form of benefit, this is generally referred to as a 'salary sacrifice' arrangement. In most countries, most kinds of employee benefits are taxable to at least some degree.

Fringe benefits can also include but are not limited to: (employer-provided or employer-paid) housing, group insurance (health, dental, life etc.), income protection, retirement benefits, daycare, tuition reimbursement, sick leave, vacation (paid and non-paid), social security, profit sharing, funding of education, and other specialized benefits

The purpose of the benefits is to increase the economic security of employees.

The term perqs or perks is often used colloquially to refer to those benefits of a more discretionary nature. Often, perks are given to employees who are doing notably well and/or have seniority. Common perks are company cars, hotel stays, free refreshments, leisure activities on work time (golf, etc.), stationery, allowances for lunch, and—when multiple choices exist—first choice of such things as job assignments and vacation scheduling They may also be given first chance at job promotions when vacancies exist.

Employee benefits in the United States might include relocation assistance; medical, prescription, vision and dental plans; health and dependent care flexible spending accounts; retirement benefit plans (pension, 401(k), 403(b)); group-term life and long term care insurance plans; legal assistance plans; adoption assistance; child care benefits; and possibly other miscellaneous employee discounts (e.g., movies and theme park tickets, wellness programs, discounted shopping, hotels and resorts, and so on).

This will help you in preparing questionnaire to compare jobs in similar grades and positions with other companies. You can also take sample jobs list for comparision and jobs matching instead of job title matching which is misleading for marketing pricing of jobs. In India Job Title inflation is big issue and HR challenges people are offered designations lavishly because 2 years expereinced HR Manager & 20 Years Experienced HR Manager job weightage will be different.

Many messages posted, requesting help with students' projects, do not contain enough information. The students rarely will have done any basic reading about how to approach their project work. Many requests, that I have come across at CiteHr, seek questionnaires or literature reviews and some even seek whole project reports.

I found a good website that gives detailed tips about the steps involved in undertaking projects and writing project proposals, etc. Please read and digest what is available at Dissertation Help | Dissertation Proposal <link updated to site home> ( Search On Cite | Search On Google )

found at Google

Also see http://www.heacademy.ac.uk/assets/bm...BA_Dissert.pdf <link updated to site home> in which "rigid adherence to the conventional scientific model" has been challenged.

Have a nice day.
