As the war for talent rages, employers are offering up increasingly extreme ways to recognize a job well done. Worklife spoke to Leslie Tarnacki, SVP of Human Resources at WorkForce Software, about how to keep employees motivated in uncertain times.
Employers are pulling out all the stops, offering experiential rewards to employees ranging from giraffe feeding, helicopter rides, racing car track days, bungee jumping and Disneyland trips, to bump up staff morale where needed. They have been getting more creative about the kinds of benefits they offer employees, to attract and retain talent, for some months.
But many believe finding new ways to appreciate employee contribution is more important than ever as we enter another period of economic uncertainty.
“Following the pandemic,” said Leslie Tarnacki, SVP of Human Resources at WorkForce Software, “staff are struggling with low morale, and recognition is what they need to stay engaged, motivated and productive.”
