When it comes to employee benefits, ‘WE’ as an employee always fantasize bigger organizations like Facebook, Microsoft, and Google. In a very similar manner, for ‘Employers’ it is all about not having sufficient revenues to offer perks to their employee in terms of benefits other than providing their monthly salary. This is just a wrong mindset, which has been created by people, in other words, it’s their own mind’s cooking. Employees look for big while Employers keep waiting for funds.
These myths surrounding the corporate world, seriously needs to come to an end. Both sets of people, Employers, and Employees need to broaden their vision and start thinking beyond the traditional boundaries. Employees need to make this point clear in their skull that now is the era of fast-paced changes in people, lifestyle and their surroundings. Nothing remains in the same old traditional manner now a day, so does this! You need to look beyond your heavy glasses, and watch out for opportunities without wasting your precious time. Yes, you got it absolutely right. There are various small-scale start-up businesses and organizations, which are offering greater benefits in order to attract talented employees, and thrive for the best with their integration. This way they hire talented people and have a tough combat against their nemesis.
According to the recent Census report of the U.S., 11% of the American Workforce is employed by smaller organizations with less than 10 workers. This knowledge comes as a negative check for the smaller organizations when it comes to hiring talented top individuals.
If you are a small organization, here are a few things you must take care of in order to attract and hire top talents.
More Flexibility, Ease, and a Better Work-Life Balance
Provide your staff with ease and flexibility to work from home for a day or three in a week. It proves as a stress buster from hectic office schedule. It makes the life of employees stress-free and easy, in return making their work more productive. Having less staff will make it easier to monitor their work done from home.
Give flexible day off and vacation- time. You shouldn’t be parsimonious when it comes to personal day offs. In a workplace that is full of fun-work balance, even small organizations can rise way ahead of the well-established corporate giants.
Offer talented individuals broader sets of responsibility and experience. Listen to their ideas, communicate with them.
Be Generous In Wages, Benefits, and Compensation
Offer a greater wage to your talented employee, even if they are fresh-entrants. This boosts their confidence and helps them to leap for the best. Also, it ensures that they won’t leave your company because of higher payment and will last longer.
You can gain loyalty by offering them full health insurance benefits.
Reward bonuses to your employees for their great job. No need to wait for Christmas. It will show them that you appreciate their hard work and dedication for your company.
Perks without Drilling a Whole in Your Company’s Pockets
No need to get kitchens fully-stocked, playrooms, or relaxation rooms. Well, if you can afford it then it is great but if you cannot than do not try to jump into those trends. Instead, you can hand your employees restaurant gift cards, reward card, and much more, so that they can enjoy their outing with family and friends.
Once in a month or so, throw a lunch or dinner party at some good place.
So dear readers, if you might have come across such organization, go for it. Smaller firms can always offer variety, ease, flexibility, and an opportunity to live a balanced lifestyle. Meanwhile, it can offer you success as well.
