Do you want the insider track to getting your employees to love their jobs? Well, you have to get creative. The benefits package you offer to staff is an opportunity to give them something a little extra. Let’s call them quirky benefits; maybe unique, non-traditional, outside-the-box or above-and-beyond benefits. They don’t have to be flashy or cost the employer a fortune, but they will definitely show your staff that they are appreciated in a special way.
“Unique benefits can help position a business as an employer of choice,” says Tom Lavery, Senior Vice-President of Reward Gateway USA. “Companies that offer unusual benefits will help them stand out from the crowd, which will make recruitment easier as top talent flocks to organizations that offer something a bit different.”
Many organizations today have a range of generations in the workplace, from the Millennials who often shun big corporations in favour of smaller, more forward-thinking organizations, to the Baby boomers, who are close to retirement but still value unique perks from their employer.
