As we’ve touched on previously, workforces that are highly engaged – those that feel connected to and invested in a company – deliver greater productivity, are more innovate and retain staff for longer. Among the ways to improve employee engagement is to offer recognition for good performance.
It may go without saying, but employee benefits don’t just benefit employees. Indeed, there are a lot of advantages to employers offering employee benefits too. Fundamentally, as you might expect, these all boil down to a company’s bottom line.
One principle all business leaders should keep in mind is this: a happy workforce is a productive workforce. Employees who are content and feel valued in their job are more productive. In contrast, those who loathe dragging themselves into work not only get less done, but bring down the morale of those around them too. Either way, the results are reflected in a company’s bottom line. Fortunately, there are plenty of things you can do to keep staff happy.
