Staff benefits what's in it for me?
Employers want the best staff but what attracts and retains them?
Within recruitment campaigns many companies highlight what they want from their staff yet fail to highlight what they offer in return. A massive oversight that not only damages your campaign it also wastes endless amounts of money and time recruiting each year. I want my clients campaigns to work so lets look at this issue.
So benefits motivate people to do something. In this instance I want to motivate you by showing you how offering staff benefits can make your life easier and your business more efficient and profitable. My mantra when adding benefits is make their motivation work for you or your goals their goals. I implemented some of these systems in my old tree care company and doubled my turnover in the first month! It’s amazing what motivated staff can achieve.

• Attract Staff to your company
• Maintain and motivate existing staff

Staff Benefits :
Employees are not always motivated by big basic salary they may be tempted to take it and coast. If you can show them that by helping you, they benefit financially and or psychologically. Remember make your goals their goals.
