Appreciate Your Labor Force: Celebrate Total Rewards This Labor Day

September is a great month to honor your employees and refresh your total rewards benefits. What better way to celebrate Labor Day? Expanding your organization's complete rewards package can be inexpensive. But first, you should know what your employees want.

What Encompasses Total Rewards

There are four types of employee benefits:

1. Health and wellness benefits - healthcare

2. Financial and retirement benefits - pension and retirement

3. Time-off and leave benefits - sick and paid time off

4. Work-life balance benefits - wellness and fringe

While prioritizing well-being has generally been found to be a top desire of employees following COVID-19, understanding the nuances of your organization and your talent is essential not to overgeneralize and miss the opportunity of remaining an intentional and transformative business leader. In a recent survey by Forbes Advisor, the benefits employees desired differed from the main benefits commonly offered by employers. These disconnects can negatively influence employee satisfaction and retention. Small and medium-sized businesses do not have to compete with large and global companies to attract, engage, and retain top talent. Therefore, small and medium-sized businesses have many advantages employees seek, which they should consider as their value proposition and leverage.

Employers have a monumental impact on their talent and business outcomes. Still, the heart of their influence is their organization's ability to strategically engage their internal stakeholders, their talent, with just as much enthusiasm as they utilize to engage their external stakeholders, their customers. When organizations and business leaders are strengths-based and strategic, the need to compete with larger companies with unnecessary or general benefits vanishes. Everyone wins.
