We all love a staff benefit or a perk of the job, but what does this have to involve? Does splashing lots of cash on away days and nights out float your boat? Or would you prefer a more simplistic approach to the staff benefits scheme? There’s a perception amongst employers that they have to spend a fortune to keep their staff happy but this quite simply isn’t the case. Employees would rather an early finish on their birthday’s, flexible hours when necessary and the possibility of duvet days. All very basic and achievable requests.
