One of the hardest points for an Employer or Recruiter to consider when looking to fill job vacancies is that there are now hundreds of job opportunities available to candidates – giving job seekers the chance to ‘shop around’ before accepting a new job.
Therefore to ensure your company and the job opportunity you are offering, stands out from any competition, it would be a good start to offer these benefits:
1. Show recognition for a great job!
Everybody likes a rewarding and appreciation boost when they have done a great job – so praise your employee by giving them some private positive feedback or publicly award them ‘star of the week’ in an update meeting or company newsletter.
2. Opportunity for growth
Look after your top performers who are highly motivated and have a drive for a prosperous career. Provide these Employees with learning and development opportunities to help them grow – this way you can expect both loyalty and productivity in return.
3. Take a flexible approach
Offer Employees the option to work from home and/or flexible hours of work when an Employee has personal issues arise. It’s in times of need that an Employee will really appreciate this type of gesture.
4. Perks of the Job
Annual / monthly bonuses and bumper pay isn’t necessarily the only bonus that Employees like to receive – other great job perks - could include: a games room, a well-stocked fridge, a gym membership discount/pass, personal incentives, mobile phone, laptop or company car / car allowance.
5. Value Employees opinions and views
Like everybody, Employees like to feel respected and valued within the company. Give Employees the chance to make a positive difference within the company by listening to their views and opinions.
6. Recognise personal achievements
If an Employee is making a conscious effort to work hard within the company and are improving their personal / work targets – take note and reward them for their hard work. After all if their hard work and contributions aren't being noticed by their Manager, they aren't going to feel recognised within their company.
