7 Staff Incentives to Keep Your “High Performing” Employees Around for A Long Time

Staff Incentives

A little perk, incentive or bonus goes a long way.

Two tasks that we get the invigoratingly mindnumbing thrill of doing from time to time are: Rehiring and Retraining

So, when you find the right people, do everything (reasonable, legal, ethical and sane) to keep them happy.

Whilst being polite and considerate (and always addressing them by their first name) goes a long way, also make it a point to:

  1. Give them a reasonable Bonus for the Holidays
  2. Do a performance review (leading up to a pay raise) every 3-6 months (the 3-6-decade review cycle that some employers use might be a “tiny bit” much).
  3. Thank them every chance you get (or you could just have a thank you message recorded into a Dictaphone and press play whenever you see them) 
  4. Add some paid vacation time to their pay structure after they had been with your company for maybe 6 months. And increase those each year by a reasonable quota (obviously not to the point of them being able to afford taking the whole year off).
  5. Make the safety and comfort of your Employees your highest priority (even if it makes you uncomfortable)
  6. Add leisure and recreation perks to make their work environment more fun (FYI: alligator wrestling and swimming with piranhas don’t qualify as “recreational activities”)
  7. Give them opportunities to progress in their career path and all the training (and Coffee) they need to get there
