How to Add Time Back Into Your Dayby Jonathan King (October 3, 2018)
With five generations now in the workforce, offering a vast array of benefits that appeal to all times of an employee’s career – those just entering the workforce to those getting ready to retire – has never been more crucial.
In fact, 75% of employees saying they’d likely accept a new job if offered the ability to customize their benefits to meet their needs.
Yet, one thing remains constant across generations in this always-on world of smartphones and watches:
The constant quest for balance and harmony between work and life demands.
So, how can you take advantage of this singular employee need – and provide benefits to help them find that balance? Offer discounts or services to help your employees save time on the life demands that take up the majority of their time – and mind space – during and outside of work hours.
Try a few of these on for size:
- Dry-cleaning pick-up & delivery
- Employer shuttles from train or bus stations
- Gym memberships or onsite fitness centers
- Discounts on grocery delivery services
- Dog walkers
- Personal concierges for everyday errands
- Telemedicine services
- Childcare services
Services like these can help employees relax a bit, knowing the errands waiting for them outside of work are taken care of, which gives them time to focus on spending time with family and friends or going for a leisurely walk or doing whatever it is they enjoy doing when they have more free time.
It essentially adds time back into their day. And who wouldn’t want that?
