Despite the current interest in organizational attractiveness and job pursuit intention, little research has examined the impact that different forms of benefits have on these two factors. This study examines the additive effect that work-life balanced culture, work flexibility, and inducements has on organizational attractiveness and job pursuit intention. A total of 119 adults participated in this study. Participants were randomly assigned to view one of eight different job descriptions with varying benefits. Two questionnaires were completed on organizational attractiveness and job pursuit intention to determine how benefits were perceived by applicants. A single factor (8 level) MANOVA was used to examine the hypotheses. The results showed that work flexibility and inducements had a significant impact on perceived organizational attractiveness and job pursuit intention. There were no differences found between males and females when examining the size of the impact of work-life balanced culture, work flexibility, and inducements on organizational attractiveness and job pursuit intention. Correlations are also discussed.
