Perks and Benefits That Every Business Should Provide Their Employees - Carol Evenson - Blog

Perks and Benefits That Every Business Should Provide Their Employees

If you're a business owner, your core employees are the lifeblood of your organization. Their success and flourishing are inextricably bound to the health of your enterprise — not to mention your bottom line. It's a given that the people you supervise need to be positive, productive members of your team. That takes careful hiring, onboarding, and accountability practices all along the way. How can you also encourage and inspire your supervisees so that they maintain their level of contribution and reach greater heights? Here are several perks and benefits that will help ensure loyalty and stability. 

Office Perks

Office perks are the kinds of things that build joy and connection into the workday and improve your company culture. They'll likely vary according to the type of business you own and the preferences of your employees. Team-building events, healthy snacks, dance breaks, and fun contests are all examples of office perks that don't take a lot of time and money but give back exponentially in terms of employee morale. 

Gym Membership

Some workplaces are fortunate to have an on-site gym. If you're not in that situation, gym memberships (or discounts) can provide a substantial incentive for your employees to get and stay in shape. Bringing in temporary consults with personal trainers is another great idea, too; they can advise on general exercise-related topics, or respond to common questions like whether you're supposed to have protein before or after a workout.

Employee Development Programs

It's a great time to be an employer if you care about employee development; there are numerous high-quality conferences, mentorship opportunities, and seminars available now — both in-person and online. It's also an advantage if you have well-established team members who have accumulated expertise; they can serve as in-house teachers and leaders. Employee development programs don't need to be excessively complex or labor-intensive — it's most important that they're relevant, engaging, and actionable. 

Health Insurance

Providing health coverage for your employees is a major factor in driving recruitment and retention. Making coverage comprehensive, accessible, and flexible is particularly important. Get out and talk to your employees about their concerns — and be sure to listen. You'll get information that will enable you to make the best choice. Recently increased access to telehealth for both physical and emotional/mental concerns has brought big benefits for the well-being of many teams; as you're researching options, check to see if it's available. 

Wellness Plans

The sustainability of your business and the general wellness of your employees are inseparable — if they're well, productivity and retention will stay on a good trajectory. Wellness plans might include making work hours flexible (or enabling telecommuting), ergonomic equipment, or making wellness/safety resources readily accessible.

Tuition Reimbursement

In the last decade, tuition costs have exploded — to the point that they may be prohibitive for most of your employees. It's a double impact if workers have to be out of the job market for several years. Even if you're not able to pay all of the fees, some financial assistance will help alleviate the strain for your employees, and improve their on-the-job skills as well. 

Paid Sick Days

An important part of employee wellness is having your sick employees stay home and recover completely. Having a reasonable sick leave policy also will make your employees feel that you care for them — so that when they return to work, they feel supported and reassured. 

Parental Leave

Having a career and a fulfilling family life does involve some tradeoffs, but it shouldn't be a hardship. Offering some form of leave for employees who are parents (paid leave is a way to differentiate your company) is a workplace trend that's increasing; it may well become the norm as more Millennials enter supervisory roles. 

Being supportive of your employees means that you're investing in your business and community for the long term. Consider these perks and benefits as you put together your human resource plan.
