Creative Ways to Recognise and Reward Employees
Health care happiness
To truly show your employees how much you value not only their labour but their health too, offer them some financial help with their healthcare. Perhaps this could be their employee of the month reward or a worker of the year prize, or just a random time to show your appreciation. Whatever the cause for responding to their efforts is, opting to do this in the form of healthcare costs will help show your value for them.
Whether this is through helping them pay for their prescriptions or pay a year of private health care for them, there are many ways you can help ensure your employees' health and wellbeing is supported.
Now that we can return to shopping outdoors again, help your staff out with their retail therapy and provide them with gift vouchers to use. Gift cards for the local shopping mall is something your staff members are sure to appreciate.
If shopping isn't quite their preferred choice of activity however, offering gift vouchers with a slight twist is also something you could opt for. For example, paying for a free cinema showing to the movie of their choice including all the snacks and slush machine combinations they desire or funding a mini-golf experience at a venue nearby, or even a trampoline park they've been eager to have a go at – gifts can come in more ways than one!
Dinner on the house
As previously mentioned, shopping sprees may not always be your employees' preferred choice of activity. However one thing for certain is that food will always be a value the entire business shares. What better way to motivate staff than by financing their dining experience then? For staff you feel have set an example the last month, or for ones that have maintained a close corporate culture with their colleagues despite working from home, pay the bill at the restaurant they crave the most.
