As a small business, one of the primary keys to your success is the strength of your workforce. Initially, you may find attracting capable employees to be relatively easy due to the fact that many people take pride in helping to be a part of getting fledging businesses off the ground. However, as you become more established, the thrill in helping to meet of your initial company milestones may fade, and those same employees may start looking elsewhere for new challenges. Larger competitors may also start seeing their capabilities and luring them away from you. Either way, it becomes imperative that you find a way to retain your talent.
Offering employee benefits can go a long way towards accomplishing that task. What are employee benefits? Simply put, they are any form of monetary or non-monetary compensation offered to employees beyond their regular salary. Even if you’ve yet to structure your own employee benefit package, you may already be providing them to some degree by withholding federal and state taxes and making payments to federal assistance programs on your workers’ behalf. Yet today’s employees understand that one of the truest measures of their value is in the type of benefits that they’re offered. Thus, you’d do well for yourself and your company not to de-emphasize that value by not offering a benefit package.
