Abstract

The purpose of this research is to identify the rewards and benefits wanted across a multi-generational workforce in Ireland in respect of employee engagement. The aim of the research is to see whether rewards and benefits given to employees affect the engagement levels of same. These benefits come in the form of extrinsic rewards, intrinsic rewards, flexible working options, and choice of benefits. This study uses a quantitative method in respect of distributing an anonymous survey to a sample of the population using the Work Value’s Instrument devised by Lechner et al., (2018). and the Utrecht Employee Engagement Scale- 9 devised by Schaufeli et al., (2006) as inspiration in the formulation of said survey. The results are analysed using SPSS-27. The results received from this survey correspond with previous literature in most ways, and show that intrinsic/ extrinsic rewards, flexible working options and choice in benefits are wanted across all generations.
