Lars Voedisch, Founder and Managing Director of PRecious Communications was featured in Business Times’ “Views from the Top” section on June 24, 2019, titled Substance Over Style.
Topic: What benefits and perks are truly valued by your employees? Are these measures effective in achieving their aims, namely attracting and retaining staff, and improving motivation and productivity?
Here is Lars’ comment as featured in The Business Times’ Views from the Top
“At PRecious Communications, employees value perks that enhance work-life balance and help them learn career skills. Hence, we provide flexible working hours, monthly training programmes, enhanced medical coverage, and cover the cost of their mobile plans. Every employee gets to order their own snacks and drinks, resulting in a well-stocked, yet personalised pantry. This reflects our company culture, where all of us are trusted to make important decisions for ourselves and our clients.
Employees also care about having fun at work, so we’ve put together a recreation area furnished with a pool table, disco lights, and bar that rivals any other on Club Street.”
Why Are We Talking About Benefits and Perks That Are Truly Valued by Employees?
In the eyes of today’s employees and job-seekers, the concept of the office has extended far beyond just a place to get work done.
Many employers have put in great effort – and at great cost – to revamp and redesign the workplace, turning it into a space that caters to a diverse range of people and pastimes, as well as ensuring that staff welfare is seen to. Do such efforts really make a difference to staff?
