||The present research is aimed at understanding the current situation of the fringe benefits demand and satisfaction of the R&D engineers. It investigates the effects of the fringe benefits satisfaction in regard to two aspects: the commitments of the organizations and the intention to quit of the employees. The population of our survey is confined to the R&D engineers of High-tech Industry. Of totally 255 distributed questionnaires, there are 176 effective. The results of our study are concluded as follows:|
1.Among 38 kinds of fringe benefits surveyed, 7 of them, namely, group-term insurance, festivities gifts or coupons, birthday gifts or coupons, wedding and funeral money, regular medical check, domestic and foreign trips and interest clubs, have the highest occurrence; over 90% of the companies offer them. Besides, more than 50% of the companies offer 21 kinds of fringe benefits. Hence it shows that the companies from the high-tech industry stress on employees’ benefit.
2.As regard to the fringe benefits which R&D engineers value, they are for the most part also the one which R&D engineers satisfy, e.g. regular medical check, group-term insurance, emergency financial assistance, free parking lots, additional vacations beside those specified by the Labor Standards Law, flexible working hours, etc. So it is obvious that high-tech industry companies do take the expectations of the R&D engineers into consideration when they plan their fringe benefits offer.
3.Individual attributes and company variables have the different influences on employee benefit demand and benefit satisfaction.
4.Employee benefit satisfaction is positively related to organizational commitment; Employee benefit satisfaction is negatively related to intention to quit.
