Creative Incentives to Keep Employees Happy
Keeping employees happy is a struggle for employers every single day. It brings a challenge to businesses looking for creative ways to keep people happy and staying around longer to work. The key to keeping employees happy may be in some creative and simple incentives.
One way to keep employees happy is by allowing them to have a flexible work schedule. Family time for special functions or just being home at the dinner table together can mean a lot to an employee. Allowing employees time off when needed, working on flexed time schedules, and being creative with their work time will make them want to give something back to the company.
Another simple way of keeping employees happy is the simple gift of coffee and teas. It’s been a proven fact that those who are given unlimited benefits of free coffee and tea are much more effective and happy employees.
Work function and events that involve family members are fun ways to allow personal and business to mix and as well gives the employee a free way to entertain the family. These small rewards are very appreciated by employees.
Incentives that allow employees to pay less money into insurance programs can be a great benefit to an employee and keep them around longer. A 401K program where the employer matches up to a certain percent of what you put in is a great benefit to an employee. Health clubs and gym memberships being waived or paid by an employer can be another great incentive to keep an employee happy.
