These are the top employee benefits you need to create a great company culture + attract your industry’s top talent
Ready to stand out from your competition? Employee benefits are the best way to help you achieve this. As a business owner, it’s in your best interest to offer an employee benefits plan that sets your organization apart. Time is money and with so many options out there, our team has put together a list of the five most desirable employee benefits, to help you instantly improve your company culture.
1) Health + Dental Insurance
The most desirable employee benefit is in no doubt health and dental insurance. It helps your employees and their families feel protected and cared for. If you’re after your industry’s top talent, then you definitely need to be offering a great group benefits plan in order to compete with other employers in your industry.
We often recommend The Chambers Plan for Tri-Cities-based businesses as it allows small and midsize companies to provide their employees with comprehensive group benefits packages specifically designed for the needs of each company. The Chambers Plan is recognized as Canada’s #1 employee benefits plan for small businesses and it’s best suited for businesses with less than 50 employees. Another great extended health and dental plan is this one by Manulife, which we also recommend.

2) Incentives and Employee Recognition
One of the most sought-after employee benefits is an incentive or reward program. Not only will this elevate your leadership practice, but it’ll help keep your employees motivated to perform their best at your organization. Incentives typically include rewards such as prizes, bonuses, time off, or awards.
3) Free Healthy Snacks
Make your team comfortable and keep your coffee and lunch areas stocked with a variety of healthy snacks. Offering seemingly small perks like snacks and coffee without charge makes your team feel more at home and valued. For offices that have shifted to remote working, we’ve seen organizations deliver boxes of healthy snacks right to employee’s homes via Amazon and local subscription boxes! Happy employees are loyal employees.
4) Flexible Work Schedules
Flexible work schedules are highly sought after, perhaps now more than ever. Employees around the world have gotten a taste of working remotely and the majority want to continue in some capacity, to save on commuting time which equals more time for themselves. Offering flexible work schedules is a zero-cost benefit and gives your team the huge perk of work-life balance, which is a major factor in retention.
5) Desk Allowance
By providing your employees with a small desk allowance, you’ll be allowing them to add their personality to their workspace and make it their own while also making them feel appreciated. This fun and low-cost employee benefit is a simple yet effective way to help you stand out in the crowd of your competitors.
When Employees Feel Valued, They Work Harder
According to a recent survey by LinkedIn, 69% of employees said they would work harder if they felt their efforts were better recognized.
