It’s increasingly important to give staff more than just a pay cheque, not every business can afford health cover so here are some unique employee perks that needn’t break the bank.
1. Stand up desks
The revolution to get employees off their backsides and upright is well underway and those who have made a stand say there is no going back.
2. Bring your pet to work
Global FMCG company Nestle encourage employees at their swish corporate office in Sussex to bring dogs to work. The makers of Purina pet food recognise the calming impact that dogs can bring to the workplace.
3. Yoga classes and office chair massage
The opportunity to stretch or be stretched is a healthy way to reboot the brain in the midst of a desk bound day.
4. Company branded goodies
Innocent keep their fridges stocked with free smoothies and also provide good quality T-Shirts for staff to wear. Branded merchandise is a surprisingly inexpensive way to reward staff and build your brand.
5. Holiday homes
TV and audio retailer Richer Sounds was a great employer long before employer awards came about, allowing staff to use their holiday homes in Britain and abroad at heavily reduced rates.
