5 Benefits of Treating Employees Well
Posted on: January 12, 2018
It’s no secret that treating someone well and being treated well makes you feel good. People spend too much time at their job to not enjoy it. Many companies are starting to evolve into a versatile work environment. With new generations entering the workforce, the pressure to follow suit is on the rise.
So what makes a company great to work for?
Marriott, for example, offers employee discounts at its thousands of hotels worldwide. Work there 25 years, and you get free stays at the company’s hotels and timeshares. Or consider Google, they allow months of paid maternity and paternity leave, provide free healthy meals, and allow employees to bring their pets to work and much more! Yes, Google and Marriott are giant corporations with abundant resources. However, if you have more than 10 employees, there are many employee benefits that your company can offer too. Five benefits of treating employees well are:
- Increased Productivity and Employee Loyalty. The saying “you get back what you give” is not just relevant for employees but also for employers. When employees know that their company cares about them, they care about their company. An employee that genuinely cares about the success of your company will work harder and be more invested.
- Stronger Customer Relationships. If your employees are unhappy, your customers will notice. Maintaining happy employees will increase the level of customer service. Employees who are willing take an extra step will definitely make a good impression.
- Less Stress = Fewer Sick Days. Treating employees well is bound to reduce stress in the workplace, which will improve their health. A great benefits package can also help keep employees healthy.
- Higher Employee Retention. Employees that are dissatisfied with their place of work usually don’t stick around long. Treating employees well will reduce the likeliness of quitting, which can save the time and money you would spend on turnover.
- Greater Talent. More Selection. If a company is well-known for mistreating employees, would you have a desire to work there? Companies with a good reputation for taking care of their employees attract top talent and give the opportunity to be selective.
