Are employee perks really a new form of currency?
It might be better to first ask: Can a really excellent perks program take the place of the salary an employee deserves?
Uhhh, absolutely not.
Employee perks should be used as a way to go above and beyond for your employees—not to make them feel bad about asking for a raise. 😣
In the latest mini-episode of our series on Crafting Culture, I share some thoughts on going above and beyond for your employees.
On top of paying a fair salary, here are a few ideas for recruiting and retaining talented employees:
- Travel opportunities
- Dress code flexibility
- Remote work opportunities
- A bigger purpose to serve outside of their job description
- A healthy, transparent work environment
- Pile those perks on top of (really) fair compensation and see the talent roll in. 🤩
