Google, incentives and looking after your staff.
Google is awesome. Not only do they supply us with endless amounts of information and social and communication tools, they also know how to look after their staff.
One of the perks of working at Google is their healthcare plan, which includes on-site medical staff. If a team member feels unwell whilst at work, he or she has access to see a doctor at the Googleplex.
We all know that work at times can be stressful. Google recognises this too and they offer their staff a subsidized massage program. For a reduced fee, employees can receive a massage from a licensed therapist in one of Google’s massage rooms.
For something similar, cost effective and closer to home, there is a service called 3 Minute Angels. They come to your business in work hours and give your employees a blissful 5, 10 or 15 minute massage.
There are many incentives that you can offer your staff to keep them motivated and refreshed. Anything from, a free lunch once a month, to a team social event, there are lots of things you can do to show your staff you care and appreciate their efforts.
Or, if you can create get a massage room with an on-site masseuse, I say do it. Your staff will love you for it.
Yours in ‘wanna-be’ massage bliss,
