Rewarding Employees

Top 10 Employee Benefits Consulting/Service Companies - 2020The days of handing out an annual ham and a handshake to workers are long gone. Rewards, like appreciation, should have meaning. According to a study conducted by benefits consulting firm Alight, workers who believe their rewards meet their needs are seven times more likely to be engaged at work than those who do not.

Employees should select their reward in the most successful reward scheme. Employees, for example, will gain points for excellent performance and then redeem those points for a reward of their choice. Gift cards, travel savings, charitable donations, the latest tech gadget, and fashionable fashion apparel are all possible incentives. Some companies build their own incentive scheme, which could include items like a day off to volunteer or goes to a child's out-of-town sporting event.

Wellness Programs

According to a report, more businesses are providing wellness services.
