You want to offer the best possible experience for your employees without spending all your money to make it happen. You know you need good perks to attract new talent, but you worry about the additional costs. If this sounds like you, consider these five perks you can offer your employees without breaking the bank.
As the workforce evolves, one of the greatest benefits you can provide is the option of flexibility. Depending on your industry, culture, and his or her specific job, you can determine just how flexible you want to be. Whether it’s the option to work from home, stack your hours, or even leave early based on their judgement, you can make your team happier by being looser about standard 9 to 5 in office hours.
2. Play hooky
When you build in days where you leave the office to do something not work related, like a happy hour or sporting event, you’re reminding your team that you value them, and work isn’t the most important thing in life. Even if it’s just an afternoon where you visit a local free attraction, days of playing hooky are a great perk to offer.
3. Casual environment
This may depend on what your company and employees do but relaxing on business casual and other standard formalities can be a completely free but immensely appreciated perk. Sometimes you need to look the sharp in suits, but if that doesn’t apply to you, maybe it’s time to loosen up your standards.
4. Fun food days
Everyone gets excited about free food and it’s a nice gesture to show your team you appreciate them. When you provide lunch once a month, bagels on Fridays, and/or monthly birthday cake, you’re allowing everyone to pause from their work and gather together for a nice treat. Inexpensive yet effective.
5. Increased recognition
Make more of an effort to applaud your employees when they’re working hard and doing a good job. Whether you partner with local business for prizes, provide gift cards, or do a fun wall of celebration, any effort to show you appreciate your team is a good idea.
