Employee perks every small business should offer

Employee perks every small business should offer

Providing perks to your employees is a great way to boost their morale and engagement in the workplace. While you may not have the budget to provide a free gym or an in-house chef, there are certain benefits you can give your staff that won’t break the bank.

Free food
Offer your team healthy snacks for free. Nutritious snacks help to enhance brain power and creativity while keeping an employee feel fuller for longer. A kitchen equipped with coffee and tea also goes a long way.

A wellness program
Create a fitness-friendly environment. It can be something simple like offering a weekly yoga class to your staff.

Work from home
Give your employees the option to work from home one or more days a week. A perk like this shows your team you trust them.

Pet-friendly environments
Allow staff to bring their fur babies into the office one day a week. A pet-friendly environment helps to reduce employee stress and encourage interaction between each other.

Flexible hours
A flexible schedule allows employees not to feel bogged down by the daily 9-to-5 and work when they feel most productive. Some staff members may feel they work better in the morning and prefer to come in and finish earlier.

Providing benefits to your employees will make them feel like a valued part of your business.
