Having your employees happy means your customers and clientele are happy, which means you, the business owner, are happy. But how can you keep your employees happy? Aside from raises, other perks of an employee’s job, be them subtle or significant, can maintain a positive and motivational atmosphere.
If your business isn’t partaking in the arrangement of providing or paying for mobile devices for your employees, get going on it. It’s possible it could save your business money, or at least it can help out your employees as well as your IT department.
Mobile devices are part of an employee’s everyday life. Many use them just as much for work as they do for personal time. As TechRadarPro points out, there are benefits for both you and your employees for business-covered mobile devices.
Using a BYOD strategy can cut down on bulky tech equipment, like PCs, and allows your employees freedom to work beyond the office and after (or before) office hours. It also allows your IT department to install protection features for business sensitive information, like emails, revenue figures and project plans that a competitor or hacker would love to get their hands on. It also can prevent viruses sneaking into one device and affecting the entire business system.
For the employee, monthly phone and Internet coverage adds a little financial relief for them, even if the business is only paying a part of the bill. It also provides a little assurance if a mobile device needs to be replaced. For those employees that may be living paycheck to paycheck, every little bit helps.
Healthcare coverage is assumed with most employee benefit packages, and 401(k)s are always an appreciated option. But instead of being typical, be unique. Check out some creative ideas from Business News Daily or try some of the following suggestions:
In case you need some extra ideas, here are even more ways to show staff appreciation:
These kinds of ideas can strengthen the bond between them and with you, which, in turn, can keep them motivated, productive and happy at work.
