Creative Employee Benefits for Every Budget
When it comes to creating a great workplace, many employers focus on creating an awesome work environment, offering competitive salaries and hiring people that are pleasant to work with. However, a little bit of creativity can go a long way when it comes to employee benefits.
Take Your Meetings Out of the Office
Meetings are an unavoidable part of work in an office, but that doesn’t mean they need to stay within your four walls! LinkedIn uses “Walk and Talks” to get their employees outside of the office, get some exercise and review any important matters of business. Not sure where to move your meetings to? Head out to a local coffee shop for a cup of Joe, go for a walk down your street or reserve a table at a favorite lunch spot for a working lunch. This employee benefit doesn’t cost much and improves productivity.
Give Out Cool Swag
Every employee loves receiving thoughtful gifts or office swag with their company’s name or logo on it. Survey your employees and see what type of gifts they would enjoy receiving. Anything from a coffee mug to a water bottle or fleece sweater to notebook would be appreciated.
Want a free employee benefit that an excellent employee would really appreciate? The best parking spot! If you have one coveted parking spot in your office, make it reserved for the outstanding employee of the month or to recognize an accomplishment by one team member.
Learning and Training
Your best employees probably have one thing in common—they all want to be better. An easy employee benefit is providing them with the materials they need to take their skills to the next level for free. Educational books, online courses, in-person seminars and professional memberships can all help your workers to gain new skills and your workplace to gain more skilled employees.
Almost 50% of HR experts say that burnout is the cause of 20-50% of their workplace’s annual turnover. Allowing employees to use “flextime,” or create a more versatile schedule that meets their needs, is a free and fabulous employee benefit. Allow your employees to come in early, leave late, head to an appointment and make up the work the next day or even work from home a certain number of hours every week. When your employees know that you trust them to perform, they will be more productive and do better work.
