You’re likely already aware that money alone is not enough to attract and retain top talent. In the past decade or so, companies small and large have made it a priority to add appealing soft benefits to create more reasons for employees to love their place of employment. The goal is to create the complete package of pay and benefits to reduce turnover, especially among the best staff members.
If you are looking to enhance your organization’s soft benefits to improve hiring and employee retention among top talent, consider offering these top three soft benefits.
Work from Home
Flexibility in the workplace is one of the qualities employees value the most these days. Having the option to work from home is a soft benefit valued by many. It eliminates commute time to the office, allows for more time with family, and helps create a more relaxed work environment. Adding a work from home option is a much-desired soft benefit that is a wonderful addition for a variety of positions.
Finding time to go to the gym before or after work can be a hassle. For those who value regular exercise, it can often be difficult to prioritize fitness. Take away this stress your employees face by adding on-site workout facilities. Your staff will find it easier to balance work and health, which will ultimately make them much happier, and more likely to stay long-term.
Parents can often become stressed when trying to balance getting to and from work and daycare. If one of your employees needs to stay late at work, but also needs to pick up his or her child from daycare before it closes for the evening, a stressful dilemma occurs. Eliminating this stressor from the lives of your top employees will make them far more likely to stay at your organization. Offering this benefit will also attract many top hires to apply for open positions.
