Collaborative Post¦ Engaging with your employees in positive ways is a great way of encouraging more productivity and promoting a healthy work environment. When your team goes a good job and has shown a level of dedication to their role, you should think of ways in which you can reward them. Not only do they deserve this reward, but it will also serve as an incentive to further provide good quality work for your business. Here are some of the best ways to reward your team.
Parties and gatherings are a great way to show your team what they mean to you. The more you push the boat out with entertainment, food, and drinks, the more you’ll demonstrate their value to you and the company. Consider options like professional chefs and open bars, to really get everyone to let their hair down. Giving people the chance to blow off some steam at a great venue not only revitalises them, ready to deliver more high-quality work, it also helps to bring your team closer together outside of being just work colleagues. A strong and cohesive team will only serve to boost the success of your business later down the line. So don’t stick to just one gathering a year at Christmas! Check out a holidays list and see what other events you can put together throughout the year to get your team bonding and feeling valued.
To reward individual success is another fantastic choice, again inspiring a continuation of productivity, but it also shows that you care about the individuals that make up your team, as opposed to just the workforce as a whole. Where possible, try to choose something fairly specific to that particular team member. Whether your team is working from home or not, sending them a gift to show how much you value them, and their work, is a good idea. Using online services like that of Gift Delivery to send a gift to a particular member of your staff is easy and they have a great range of choices, suitable for just about everyone. You could even consider sending gifts to team members on maternity leave such as their baby gift hampers or bear in a box.
While individual gifts are wonderful, they’re not always useful for prolonged periods, no matter how great the intentions are behind the gift. Plus, if you’re wanting to reward your entire team and have expended the party budget for the year, you’re likely wracking your brain trying to think of some other option. This is where perk services will come in handy. There are a number of different companies offering perks for businesses, such as shopping discounts, entertainment deals, and even medical perks. Find a package online that you feel will be suitable for your company and sign up now. Not only are there some great deals out there but they’ll last for much longer.
If you haven’t yet implemented flexible working hours or offering time off in lieu, now might be a great time to do so. This new work ethic is sweeping across the world, showing an understanding by employers that people shouldn’t live to work. Work is a necessary supplement to our lives and merely showing you care about work-life balance is enough to inspire further loyalty and dedication from your team. Offer these new working hours, including time off for those putting in extra hours, to really boost morale.
