Chances are, you want your employees to be happy. A happy employee means that they are more driven and productive, which translates to increased revenue for your business.

That’s why it’s vital for you to make sure your employees stay motivated, productive and, well, happy.

For your employees, they will be much more excited to get out of bed each day if they know that you have their well-being as one of your top priorities. And lucky for you, that doesn’t necessarily mean pay raises for everyone; there are plenty of other affordable benefits and perks you can offer to improve satisfaction.

Here’s our list of notable job perks you should consider offering (whether you are a large or small business) if you’re looking to get a boost in morale:

1. Flexible Scheduling

Say goodbye to 9 to 5, and hello to increased employee satisfaction by allowing employees to set their own hours. So instead of tracking their time outputs, you could focus on solely monitoring work outputs – giving employees extra time to sleep in or get their work done as they see fit.

Granted, this perk isn’t for every company. And you’ll need to be extra careful or set guidelines in place for those that may try to abuse this policy.

2. Unlimited Vacation

Instead of having a detailed, strict time-off policy, you might consider allowing employees to take as much vacation as they want. Especially if your team works hard, why not let them play hard too?

You can also consider putting a generous cap on time off and additional perks like birthdays off, bonus time off for the holidays or even summer Friday vacations.

3. Total Wellness Perks

Healthy employees often produce a better quality of work. You might not be able to have an on-site physician working solely for your employees, but that doesn’t mean you can’t place employee wellness at the top of your priority list.

Even small things such as occasionally bringing a masseuse in-house or offering the random yoga class here and there can help your staff to de-stress.

4. Volunteer Time Off & Civic Engagement

Millennials want to feel as if they are making a difference. So if you have a large number of Millennials employed or are recruiting the age group, then offering paid time off or flexible work schedules to go volunteer with charities might be a great option for your business.

5. Fun & Games

Having games at the office might not be for every company, but inserting a bit of fun into your office for breaks and downtime can go a long way in boosting morale. Whether it’s something small like an x-box or bigger like access to a basketball or volleyball court, adding games will help your employees to take a break during the day and come back to work more refreshed.

Conclusion

Finding the right mix of benefits that are both affordable and highly desirable can be tough. But when you do find it, it can give your company a competitive advantage if you can’t afford the highest salaries and pricier job perks.
