Behind the success of every prospering company, there is a great team. The ability to find an above average employee is priceless. Reliable team members allow you to sleep at night. You can trust them to do their job the best way they possibly can. But what happens when people don’t want to work for you anymore? Better ask - how to prevent them from wanting to leave? In today’s post, we are discussing all of the benefits you can give your employees to make their work life even better.
Did you know that more than half of the people currently employed aren’t actively looking for a job, but… If anything better comes along, they would consider taking the new opportunity. It’s probably not because they don’t like their current employer but most of us humans at the end of the day want to take care of our needs and desires. A better job offer means higher salary, improved contract, more suitable work environment, extra bonuses etc.
When building your own tech team you need to remember that these people could easily be working from home. That is why you have to provide them with a good working space, even better than the one they have at home. Nowadays every company with a good position on the market goes overboard with their office design. Modern interior means a creative team, new technologies and being up to date with market changes. But if your budget doesn’t allow you to go overboard with trendy interior design, then you must focus on the basics:
There’s nothing worse than coming to work every day and feeling stress and anxiety each morning. Having unhelpful work colleagues or manipulative boss will drain the life out of any employee. If you see a sign of these types of behaviours in your workspace, you need to get rid of the source right away. Better yet, prevent it by giving the best example. Set up a “buddy” program for every new employee. Help your team to integrate and build relationships by going out together. You can always make Friday a pizza day, who doesn’t like pizza? It’s always a good idea to have games in your workspace. There’s plenty to choose from - the classic Fussball, some offices have PlayStation, table tennis etc.
Anything works if people can use it to relax between tasks and have fun with each other. Another way of creating a positive relationship with a company is giving out freebies with your logo. Everyone loves a cool gift - mugs, notebooks, pens - they’re alright but backpacks or cotton totes are even better. It’s a way of building an identity with your company outside of the office.
