Long term rewards achieve results
According to the latest Workplace Employment Relations Study (WERS), job satisfaction levels increased in 2012 as 20% of employees were ‘satisfied’ or ‘very satisfied’ with all aspects of their job, compared to 16% in 2004.
The extensive study of more than 21,000 UK employees also revealed that since 2004, employees’ level of commitment to the organisation in which they work has increased.
This rise in employee engagement levels is encouraging and can be attributed in part to the implementation of staff reward schemes which many businesses operate in order to boost motivation and good feeling.
However if businesses want to achieve real results with a reward, a gift that is long lasting will ultimately have greater impact as Natalie Vescia, Wickes Client Marketing & Relationship Manager, explains:
“A trip to the cinema, restaurant or favourite shop is a pleasant experience for many, but not one that is long term.
“A reward that enables a member of staff to invest in and improve their home environment is not only a long lasting reminder of the company but also makes a powerful statement about them. It positions the business as one that is considerate towards an employee’s life at home, outside of work, and actively helps them to devote time to it.
“It is advisable for employers to give their staff the choice of short or longer term enjoyment.”
