Now that you have a clear idea of how to strategically implement an employee rewards program, let’s take a look at some custom ideas that you can use in your program.
1. Introduce contributors to your website or social networks
Bring public recognition! This award allows the recipient to shine in the spotlight through a feature on your company’s website or on social networks. (And have employees approve all photos before sharing.)
2. Sharing (virtual) food with food delivery
There used to be team lunches and happy hours as a way to connect. And thanks to video chat and food delivery, they can! Reward the team by providing food in their homes for a happy hour or lunch.
3 Create your own background Zoom in their honor
By mid-2020, the popularity of the Custom Zoom background is growing as a host of new remote workers learn to navigate the digital culture. Reward employees by creating your own background for them and show them off with pride.
4. Write a note by hand
For analog age only? You are not alone. In our digital age, handwritten letters preach an increased level of sincerity and expediency. Send a personal thank you to the employee praising him/her for the good work.
5. Select them in the playlist
Did you start your weekly stand-up music? It’s simple, but unmistakably comfortable – let the winner choose a song valid for a week of their choice.
6. Payment for monthly fitness subscription
For our physical, emotional and mental health, there is no stronger lifting than regular exercise. Apart from this, employers should also have a workplace wellness program for the overall welfare of their employees.
7. Sign up for a stress relief app
Who doesn’t need it today? This reward pays for subscriptions to meditation, yoga or other applications.
9. Provide mentoring
Don’t underestimate the power of learning and development (L&D)! Development is an important pillar of the employee experience. Provide mentoring opportunities for yourself or other leaders in your business. Then watch your employees – and their involvement – grow.
10. Gift vouchers
Seeing, holding or hating, sometimes the most personal gift is the one the employee chooses. Make sure your own rewards catalog offers gift cards at different price points for a wide variety of stores. Ask your employees for a short questionnaire with 2 questions. This way, you are sure to meet everyone’s needs!
