Additional benefits for employees make them more satisfied with their job

Additional benefits for employees make them more satisfied with their job
Additional benefits for the employees are a thing now. "Just" the salary isn't enough and many companies give their employees additional health insurance, cinema tickets, gym cards and other small gifts. It is said that people work better if they see that their employer takes care of them. Those benefits might not be worth that much but it is better to buy them for the employees so they see that the company treats them right.

Agree

Can You Spell "Compensation Analyst"?

A thing now? About 35 years ago, I met a woman who told that her son was a “Compensation Analyst”. Have you ever heard of such a job title? His job was finding out ways to compensate people for their labor which went way beyond the regular paycheck or salary. I think if you are a company owner and you actually hire somebody and their whole job is trying to determine “benefits” to offer employees to make them happier with their job, benefits must be very important!

Definitely

Over here it's difficult to find a company that pays benefits to its employees which is a really bad thing because a happy employee is also an employee which will work harder and better

Absolutely

Some of the most successful companies provide significant benefits for their employees including free food. I think that it's important to respect your employees and invest in them, their health and even their happiness, to make sure the company continues to get satisfactory work and to improve employee satisfaction.

Yes!

How can you disagree with that? Haha... I mean, it's only natural - and kinda logical - that with more types of earnings (even if it's not cash) employees will work better and happier. But you need to know how to maintain those benefits and not relax while performing your tasks.

I will definitely work hard!

Additional benefits for employees is a great idea to make them more effective and efficient. They are willing to give more of their talents to the work than before. It is hard to find a job nowadays that offers good benefits. Sometimes employees work hard but they didn't get what they must receive. So proposing to have an additional benefits is a great idea. It will be more fun to work than before.

perks

I can see how perks can sometimes be a suitable replacement for a bigger salary. Some jobs probably don't pay much but give you a good place to live and a good set of meals everyday and maybe for some that's enough. Some jobs also may not pay well but allow you to travel to luxurious places and that's also something that sounds a bit attractive. I myself would prefer a bigger salary but could see myself settling for other perks if the right one was presented.

True.

I totally agree with you especially when you are working for a boss/company that also consider the emotional side of the workers. This is a sure way to ensure that the firm do well as regards getting the output of the people working for the firm. I have always believed that when the workers are happy, everything will always work out at the end for them.

Working Benefits

The more benefits an employee receives from his employer, the more loyal, enthusiastic and productive the employees become.

All benefits are derived from company profits which cannot be realized if the employees are not happy with their work. It is therefore the responsibility of the Employer to always make sure that his Employees are motivated, and one way of motivating employees is by giving them the benefits they deserve.

When you know your boss or management actually cares about you, I think there’s a direct translation to performance improving. It’s a good thing!

Not really...

Some employers think that they can get away with paying low wages to their employees by granting fringe benefits that only cost peanuts and can be taken away anytime. Employees who deserve better pay than what they are currently receiving view such benefits as consolation and a vain attempt to cover up the management's lack of empathy for the real needs of their employees and that is to bring home a decent salary.

I guess so! It is the human instinct to be more motivated when there is the possibility of having an additional reward. I support this additional bonus culture and I think this is key to creating a better relationship between company and employee. Surely if I have an employee one day, I will give them additional bonuses to keep them motivated and more productive.

It depends on what country you are in, because in the USA what healthcare plan you can get is worth more than the actual salary. Many people stay in a job just for that. I do think things like holiday pay (which is commonplace) is important, but more companies are trying to get out of paying. One company I worked for has a scheme, once you have worked 25 years they give you a year paid sabbatical. Not many do that, but it would garner loyalty without a doubt. Maybe if they did shorter ones like 3 months after 8 years, and 6 months after 12 years then it would help people see jobs as careers.

I have a brick and mortar business. It is a vehicle tyre store. I have two employees. The boys have been earning flat salary since the establishment of the store. Of late they did not show any enthusiasm. Then I told them that I will give them 1 percent of the total sales as a commission. The boys were so encouraged that began working hard and new customers fluctuated.

This can work as well in boosting the desire of the employees to put in their best in what they do at the firm. They must have calculated how much they are going to make bringing in extra sales which pushed them to increase their passion for the work that they do for you at the work place. I hope it gets better for you.

I have always believed that non-monetary rewards are important. You need to make your employees feel valued and show that you care for them. This will, in turn, motivate them to work harder. It is not always about money. At my previous job, the company used to give us free vouchers for our birthdays. Moreover, we could organize at least two outings per year and the costs were covered by the company. All the employees were entitled to a free medical check-up yearly.

There are ways that employees can feel valued at the firms that they work for. Such situations like ensuring that their salaries are paid on time is one way to show that you truly care about those that work for you. Also, appreciating their work no matter how little it is can go a long way in ensuring that they put in their best with the mind that the management appreciates their work.

I work in a big company in the managerial position. I have seen how struggling employees appreciated the benefits given by the management such as extra bonus in the form of gift certificates during the rainy season, the 2-month Christmas bonus aside from the midyear bonus of 1 month. We had bought our home courtesy of the housing loan from my husband’s company and our car from my car loan. Truly, we become satisfied when there are more benefits.

When employees are given good additional benefit it gives them good motivation to perform better in their place of work.

If companies will learn to appreciate their hardworking employees by giving them additional benefits like freebies, the employees will be inspired more to work harder because they felt their hard work is appreciated by being rewarded even if it the additional compensation doesn't worth much.

Sure, nothing motivates one as good incentives from one place of work, it would put more spring on one's heels and makes one sit upright to work.I hate a place of work with slavery background.it can't help anyone to grow or makes one happy to work.

It is one good way to show the value of employees to the company he/she is working with. Though not every employer would consider providing additional benefits for some, it's enough that they are paying monthly for the wage of their employees and that's it. It would really boost someone to work harder if they will be recognized more and will be given an extra token for a well-done performance.

Every benefit can make a worker motivate to do more in his/her work but it will not be equal to satisfaction with their job. There's more than additional benefits to make someone satisfied with their job. What if it is not their passion? Or doesn't make them happy? It is the same when a person who has a lot of money but doesn't have any friends or family that makes his soul satisfied.

Well I think benefits should depends on the performance of the employee. But honestly we need that benefits, even just a simple employee. In our company we have a gym for all employees, but the movie tickets or other gift certificates are just for those really hard working employees, and I think that's fair enough. The benefits sometimes become rewarding system in our company to push hard the employees and do the proper job just to get these benefits.

We also have gift certificates given by our company for good performance. And those gift certificates have a good number that it can buy a week’s supply of food for the family. We are given those gift certificates every 3 months and I’d say that it is a good benefit since compared to other companies they don’t have that benefit. We also have other benefits like housing and car loans which can help employees for their needs.

When you treat your employees right and give them the benefit that they deserve a business will definitely more because of efficiency and productivity. Most employees are very loyal, problems occurs when a company fails to give their employees the right and sufficient benefits.
