NEW YORK, Oct. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- HRA administration company, Clarity Benefit Solutions, offers five ways to makeemployees happy.
Studies demonstrate that happier employees are more engaged, productive, and likely to stay at a company longer. Here are five ways to keep employees happy, thus attracting and retaining top talent.
Keep the lines of communication open
Give them some breathing room. This is especially true with the younger members of the workforce. Provide some leeway with how and when employees get their work done. Telecommuting, job sharing, and flexible working hours are some ways to make employees happier. Do not measure productivity by the amount of time spent behind a desk in the office. Instead, examine the quality of their work. Placing this high level of trust in employs will make them more motivated and productive.
Encourage some downtime. Taking breaks is important to the overall well-being of employees. Employers should strongly recommend that employees take breaks throughout the day. Make sure the cafeteria or break room has plenty of coffee, water, and snacks so employees have a few minutes to relax. This also opens opportunities for networking and brainstorming while away from their desks. Employers who acknowledge that their employees work hard and deserve a few minutes of downtime will have happier employees who feel sense of worth.
Plan some outings. All work and no play is a surefire formula for unhappy employees. Hold team building events—especially when the weather is nice. Plan a picnic, attend a local sporting event, or hit an amusement park. Going bowling or to an arcade can be fun indoor activities to take on.
Celebrate employee accomplishments. Nothing makes employees happier than being acknowledged for a job well done. In addition to taking a special break to recognize the accomplishment and share a treat, establish an employee-recognition program that allows employees to choose items such as gift certificates or additional PTO for special achievements.
