The Business Benefits of Employee Incentives

Share this article:
Job satisfaction and making your employees feel good about themselves is an interesting concept but you may wonder if the effort is necessary. We’re here to tell that it is. It makes good business sense. Paying a wage is enough to get someone to show up for work but to get the job done well it may take a little more than monetary gain. Research suggests that offering employees benefits such as reward prizes, discount vouchers, or even extra free time, can have a major positive impact on your business. Here are the four main ways in which offering employee incentives will benefit your business:
    • Retention
      Recognition and reward programs will help to lower staff turnover. This will reduce costs and save time. On top of that, your skilled workers will remain loyal to you rather than to your competition. In the end you will retain the best staff and save money.
    • Morale
      Employees feel their efforts are appreciated are likely to work harder and more efficiently. This confidence is easily boosted through reward and recognition programs. If you involve peers in the evaluation process that boost is even bigger.
    • Productivity
      When faced with peer rivalry, healthy competition, and the chance to win a reward that they really want, employees are more likely to produce a higher standard of work than otherwise. The program that you create could be geared towards encouraging staff to work faster and more efficiently, thus becoming more productive.
    • Loyalty
      Showing appreciation is likely to strengthen the dedication and loyalty of the employee. Staff members will work harder if they feel they are part of something, rather than a means to an end and a happy employee will talk about your company in a positive light, rather than bad-mouthing it as a terrible place to work.
With such tremendous benefits to your business there is no reason to delay creating a program today. Getting started is easy – simply pick the plan that is best for you and then let the dedicated RewardCo team do the hard work.
