…. and neither do health fund memberships. These were the standard two offerings to employees during my years in recruitment and one which has largely remained unchanged in the past 10 years according to my former work colleagues.
Let’s face it, not everyone is a gym person. The intention of the employer is to offer an opportunity to employees to care for their well being, but what if your employee is not actually interested in health and fitness OR they might still be interested fitness; but they run outdoors so they have no need for a gym, perhaps they play tennis and again don’t need a gym. The gym might not be in a convenient location or even open at hours that suit their lifestyle! Whilst this might look good on paper, it is only valid for a very few of your employees, and certainly not a ‘one size fits all’ solution.
The same could be said for health insurance. Many of these funds are negotiated by the corporation, but may not be appropriate for the wide and diverse group of employees within an organisation.
On the other hand a Corporate Concierge encapsulates everybody within an organisation regardless of their lifestyle or health and fitness aspirations. A common theme among all employees is that at some point (if not everyday), they feel the overwhelming angst of a ‘to-do’ list. The two days away from work employees receive, they are trying to create a family life and take time to recharge so they are refreshed to add value to your organisation come Monday.
A Corporate concierge offered to employees can free up time for everyone in your organisation. The benefits of multiple:
- Without a doubt they will be more productive at work. Higher productivity = higher revenue. Any time previously spent googling for a trade or finding a new nanny would handled by your Concierge.
- Who wouldn’t love the idea of having someone take care of their ‘to do’ list! It is a total feel-good for your team, and can even improve team morale!
- It can reduce individual’s stress, which will lead to lower absenteeism among your team.
- It can play a key role in your candidate attraction strategy.
A Corporate Concierge is a true employee reward innovation. Whilst relatively new to the Australian market has been embraced by the US and UK employees for many years with outstanding results with one US Concierge achieving a 146% ROI for an insurance company leader in the first year of service. The service more than paid for itself in increased productivity, and served as an effective recruiting and retention tool, improved morale and employee satisfaction.
