3 Ways Employee Benefits Can Save Your Business Money in 2019

Employee retention is very critical for the success of any company. It is more expensive to hire new employees and then train them and provide the requisite skills to them than providing some perks to retain the existing employees. It is clear that employees will be happier when they get better benefits and perks. So let us see what kind of benefits help to keep them happy and satisfied.

  1. The first and the most important aspect is to do some research and find out about the perks that really make employees happier. You may not be able to add all kinds of perks so identify the ones that are provided by other companies and then see what all can you provide in your company. Meal plans, health insurance including a dental plan, discounted membership to clubs and gyms are some of the most popular benefits that employees like. These may not be very expensive to get if you go for group plans.
  2. Make them feel cherished and they will reciprocate. The employees must feel that their services are valued by the company and monetary rewards should make them feel that way. You can give deals and discount coupons every time some target is met or some festival is around the corner. Couponobox has many such coupons that can be used in different types of stores. They will be happy to redeem and buy something for their family and thank the company.
  3. Offer them schemes where they can save money and save taxes. The company can add some contribution to make it look attractive and add to the total amount saved for retirement.

These are some monetary rewards that help to provide some advantage to the employees. This way the employees feel that their services are appreciated and they are happy to work for a company that takes care of their needs. All these small things will save you money that will potentially be spent on new recruitment.…

The Benefits and Importance of Ethics in the Workplace

I used to often wonder how it would be to have employees who have no idea about workplace ethics. Would they be a disgrace to the management? In the final year at college where I was doing an optional paper on business ethics, I decided to go in for an internship in a nearby corporate in order to find out for myself what the scenario inside the offices was.

Was I disappointed?

Well, not that I really was. In fact, I was surprised. The work culture that this company had created within its office made me really look up to it. Don’t believe me? Go take a look at!

I noticed that the employees here had a strong sense of belonging to the workplace:

The stationery and the equipment closets were left open and there was no one in charge. Yet, I never in my two months there found one miscreant trying to flick anything for his personal use.

The telephone lines were open and still, I found the workers were only using their private phones to call and that also when they were having their designated break time.

This was my first brush with the corporate culture and I was almost tricked into believing that this is how it is everywhere. But now I know that it is not!

It is the corporate’s role to infuse de facto ownership of the company’s asset in the employees:

This modus helps give the workers the feeling that he collectively owns all the asset of the company along with the other employees rubbing shoulders with him, the higher-ups in management and the stakeholders. He becomes as much a guardian of the assets as the owners of the company would be.

I found this culture amazing and I wrote at length about it in my dissertation. I was also called to speak at the annual general meeting of the company where I received recognition, a plaque and a certificate of appreciation from the directors of the company; easily the best day of my life!
