Giving people what they want: employee benefits and reward for a modern workforce

“Change is the only constant,” said the Greek Philosopher Heraclitus, which since his day has never not been true. When it comes to employee motivation in our fast-paced world, your approach to recognition and reward needs to reflect the diversity and dynamism of your workforce.After all, it has been established beyond doubt that motivated employees work harder and perform better. It is therefore more important than ever to ensure your employee benefits and reward proposition is well-considered and fit for purpose.

Here at Edenred we have championed the advantages of employee motivation for almost as long as Heraclitus has been talking about change. The idea is a simple one: a human and transparent approach to motivation that inspires trust and treats each employee in the way they deserve - as an individual.

Getting it right across the board 

An approach to employee engagement that celebrates the individual means you stay ahead of the curve and ensures your benefits and reward package is appropriate and effective at all times.

If you don’t get that bit right, discontented workers who don’t perform and leave because they feel under-valued can end up costing your business dearly.

Instead, we can help you to put a package together that reflects the needs of a modern workforce with different attitudes, priorities and career expectations by empowering them with choice.

This in turns creates an energised, positive environment full of motivated people where work is enjoyable for everyone, not just a select few, and success is celebrated openly and often.

Help is at hand  

The real commercial gains of employee motivation for your business come from challenging yourself and being challenged by your benefits provider to do things differently. 

It’s not just about changing the way you do one or two things, it’s a wholesale shift in behaviour and attitude in order to create a culture of genuine appreciation and recognition in the workplace, leading to improved performance and success for the business.

Edenred has never been better placed to meet the employee engagement needs of the 21st Century workforce.
