Sleeping on the job is still taboo, with many companies discouraging the practice even at lunch. However, some majorly successful companies have a different approach. Not only do they allow napping, they encourage it! Some household names that actually have facilities on site for napping:
- Capital One Labs
- Ben & Jerry’s
- The Huffington Post
If your employees work long hours and their job tasks require intellect and creativity, you may want to consider nap pods. According to The New York Times, 20-minute naps will do wonders to refresh your employees, especially after the post-lunch lull.
Premium Coffee Machines
In spite of the benefits of a nap, not everyone has the time for one. When deadlines start to creep up, employees sometimes have to push through the drowsiness and get the work done as soon as possible. When this happens, caffeine may come to the rescue.
From simple coffee machines in breakrooms to Keurig machines with dozens of flavors, many companies invest in caffeine for their workers. Big companies like Google go a step further by having a coffee bar with a full-time barista.
Employee Recreation – Foosball or Ping Pong Tables
Whether or not a foosball or ping pong table is a great way to spend your Sunline savings depends on your office culture. Group games can strengthen employee bonds and promote teamwork. Studies have shown that even when nobody plays, the mere presence of these tables create value and accentuate office décor. A stroll by the foosball table for clients or interviewing prospects will give the impression of a fun-loving company that values its employees.
Onsite Fitness Center
Investing in a fitness center is a gift that keeps on giving. It doesn’t have to be a world-class gym with all the top-notch machines. Even if you only have treadmills, ellipticals, free weights and a bench, employees will appreciate the convenience of being able to workout at the office in the morning, on lunch break, or before making the drive home. Here are some of the many benefits you could reap from this:
- Better employee retention
- Reduced healthcare costs
- Improved job satisfaction
- Reduced absenteeism
- Reduced stress
Another way many companies help employees to reduce stress is by offering massage opportunities at work. Some companies put massage chairs in the lounge, while other companies may have a trained masseuse on site to offer 15-minute chair massages. Companies sometimes go so far as to have spas facilities built.
According to Forbes, workplace stress has been a thief of employee productivity and engagement for some years. However, wellness programs, such as chair massages, can really help employees to relax and unwind. This is especially helpful in high-stress fields, such as law, finance, insurance and tech.
Employee Trip or Event
Every employee is different, and whereas some are impressed by material things, others are more interested in memorable experiences. For these employees, a year-end or quarter-end trip may be more appropriate. Also, because the company is purchasing in bulk, you may get a reduced price to help make the trips even more affordable. Here are some options to consider:
- Theme park with family members invited
- Weekend retreats
- 5k charity runs
- Hiking trips
