Where does the DNA of your company reside? In the people creating and sustaining the product or service. What separates you from the competition? The very benefits, sense of purpose, sense of security, financial support, advancement opportunities and personal growth you offer the people.
The benefits employees gain from working with you will develop characteristics for loyalty, stability, engagement, quality performance, increased productivity, reliable business relationships and a priceless work culture. Without a doubt, offering better-than-basic employee benefits is necessary for a successful business and a strong foundation.
Think out of the box when building your unparalleled work environment and benefits package. Not only include health and life insurance but also professional development, dental, retirement, paid leave, schedule flexibility and perks and rewards. Here are five reasons why a better benefits package will benefit your business:
1. Enhance Work Performance
Employees care more when they know employers genuinely care about them. Show them that you care enough to offer more than the bare minimum, and they will begin to deliver work that exceeds the minimum requirements. They will be healthier and more attentive. They will work better, more productive and more efficient. Not only will the product or service enhance but customer care and support will increase.
2. Drive Engagement
According to the State of the American Workplace report, only 33% of employed residents in the United States are engaged at work. However, you can transform the number of employees willing to go the extra mile and work with passion in your office. Offering better benefits (that clearly communicates how valued their wellbeing and happiness is to the leadership) will strategically motivate them to go over and beyond with work. Highly engaged, proactive employees produce profitability and productivity.
3. Attract and Retain the Top Talent Employees
Differentiate your business from the masses by promoting an undeniable benefits package to top talent. A survey by McKinsey Quarterly showed that attracting and retaining talent was the biggest reason that companies offer employee benefits. A solid benefits package demonstrates a solid company foundation. An unconventional, rewarding package demonstrates an unconventional and rewarding company environment.
4. Create a Valued Company Culture
Investing in your employees proves that you’re thinking about what’s best for them and you value their performance. It builds an energized team with a sense of purpose. Show them that they’re a part of your vision. Once they understand that, they will align with the mission and cultivate a valuable culture — a culture that will be hard for anyone to walk away from.Was this article useful?
