Ceridian Study Reveals 83% of North Americans Value Workplace Wellness
Millennial and Gen Z populations expect employers to support their financial security and well-being in the new world of work
TORONTO and MINNEAPOLIS, June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ceridian (NYSE: CDAY; TSX: CDAY), a global leader in human capital management (HCM) technology, today announced the results of a study revealing 83% of surveyed North Americans wish their employer offered non-health benefits, such as on-demand pay and flexible work arrangements, and – if offered – 82% would feel more loyal to their employers.

Moreover, 82% in this age group expect a current or future employer to play a role in supporting their financial security and well-being.
