COVID-19 will shape what wellbeing and recognition benefits employers have as part of their future benefits programmes. One of the key considerations will be to look at benefits that help to build resilience and improve the health and wellbeing of staff.
Wellbeing benefit programmes that support healthy eating and promote exercise are growing in popularity. Dietary advice and information are available with employee assistance programmes and the cycle to work benefit encourages exercise.
Another key challenge facing businesses as they try to sustain themselves through the economic recession caused by the lockdown is how to make sure that employees feel appreciated and motivated so that they maintain productivity. This can be achieved through creating a positive and dynamic culture of recognition and putting in tools to celebrate employee success and innovation.
