With so many influential companies piling on the frills, it can become easy to get caught up in the hype of extraneous perks. Although you don’t want to pare down to zero perks, it’s better to take a look at what specific benefits would drive top performers to choose your company. It could be that they value much different perks than catered food and massage days – more often, people are looking for a company that reassures them that their contribution matters, and compensates their efforts with a good work-life balance. At the end of the day, investing in your employees has far more value than paying for the biggest and best perks.
Companies trying to build and sustain highly profitable businesses want to motivate good employees to stay. Nothing says ‘we care’ quite like personalized rewards that speak to the individual employee that you’re celebrating. When someone does something extraordinary, recognize their accomplishment with a personalized reward.
Rewards are meant to show your appreciation to staff. Tailor the benefits you offer to the needs and wants of your employees. While money can be a strong motivator, people want a lot of other things from their work lives, too!
As the expression goes, “you can always make more money but you can’t make more time”.
One major desire for top performers is to find an employer that emphasizes work-life balance. These talented potential employees are undoubtedly hard workers and team players — but they’re also going to need downtime to recharge and stay creative. Add in the possibility that these candidates may have young families to take care of, and it’s no surprise that many job-seekers look for companies that value a healthy balance between work and personal life.
Having someone look after your top employees or as a ‘special’ reward for those who go the extra mile for the company is a way to give back time to them.
A concierge service can take care of many of the things that they would have to do when they get home or possibly distract from their work day. Employees spend their days working at their job and then come home to their second job – trying to organize their home, running errands, buy groceries along with many other responsibilities that prevent them from relaxing, recharging or just doing the things they enjoy with their personal time. Reducing stress, improved health and helping them balance both their busy work and personal lives is the benefit of having a concierge help with these tasks.
A gesture that says to them we want you to be content both at work and especially at home in your life!
