Topics we are covering
How and why would an employer offer costly benefits to staff, right now?
- There are free benefits that employers can offer to help their staff right now and this will go a long way
- You may have benefits staff don’t even know are there as you have not truly promoted these
- Bolt on’s to benefit you might not even know about- such as free counselling line if staff are feeling isolated at home for example
- If staff are considering a move a benefit package is a great incentive to stay – shows your commitment to them – saves recruitment costs
- Sick leave , waiting for medical appointments will be longer than ever – private care means they are back to work quicker
Is sending a bottle of wine through the post a good idea?
- Flexible working policies , negotiations are going to be necessary , especially for those with child care issues
- Communication is key so everyone understands the position for the them and the business
- Treat those at home with commitment as well as those that return as they both need to be productive
- If one is given flexible arrangements for travelling into work, the other might need this at home for child care talk!
- Sending a bottle through the post , as a thank you, setting up social virtual touch ins and socials every bit you do as an employer keeps the team motivated
