The pandemic has reinforced just how much we rely on staff as we rebuild our businesses to reflect the changing circumstances.
Where benefits were previously not always important to employees, there is now an opportunity to consider their new found interest.
Now that so many have experienced a financial shock, there is great scope for employers to use benefits as a tool to motivate and secure staff. However, many SME business owners mistakenly believe that they cannot afford to offer benefits.
Lockdown has impacted us all in several ways. For many it has meant juggling an already busy life in closer surroundings than ever before. Our homes have become offices, schools and leisure spaces. We are more at risk of anxiety and stress at work (wherever that is) and so ensuring your employees well being is paramount to a company’s overall value proposition.
