Money more important than vacation
Norwegian employees claim higher salary is more important than longer vacations or a secure pension plan. In contrast, six of ten Swedes want a pension plan when they negotiate for better benefits.
The survey was conducted in 11 countries in Europe by Monster and 18.801 persons participated. The survey wanted to establish what kind of benefits employees want, higher salary, long vacation, pension plans, paid cell phone/Internet or gym membership.
In Norway higher salary was the most popular thing to wish for, ranked the most important thing by about half of the 1369 Norwegians participating in the survey.
«Its not surprising that so many list salary as the most important compensation we have, but it is surprising that over half do not want higher salary, but state that there are other things that are more important when they negotiate for better benefits at work,» said Charlotte Högfeldt, area manager for Monster in Norway and Denmark.
In addition to salary, one in four Norwegians wants more vacation.
