Are you ready to experiment with an easy way to boost employee engagement?
If yes, put on your human resources professor lab coat and explore something with us.
Imagine your company embraces the idea of work-life balance. It offers you flexibility around telecommuting and gives you all the tools needed to get your work done – anywhere, anytime. You’re trusted with unlimited PTO. Wellness programs are in place to encourage you to stay healthy. What’s more, your boss does not email you while you are on vacation. In essence, your company understands that a dynamic and productive workforce is made of people with different work styles and personal needs. It knows that in exchange for arming employees with opportunities to balance work and life, employees will reciprocate with loyalty, focus, and engagement. Quid pro quo yo!
So far, so good?
Now, imagine your company takes it one step further and thoughtfully offers one more employee perk. A perk that will serve as a true recruiting and employee retention differentiator for the company. A perk that gives employees more free time to enjoy life outside of work.
The perk relates to a study we’re conducting with the Harvard Business School and the University of British Columbia. Our hypothesis is that time-saving employee rewards like lawn-mowing, errand running, and delivery services lead to greater levels of job satisfaction. If recognized for hard work with perks that offer more free time, employees will return to work rested, refreshed, and ready to crush it.
