The holiday season is upon us and we at AppleOne are happy to say that we have been fielding a lot of questions from employers about giving Temporary, Contract, and other non-staff workers holiday pay.
There were several reasons why companies want to give their Temporary workers holiday pay, including:
- Temps are part of the team. The end of the year is a great time to celebrate the contributions of ALL of your employees – Temporary workers worked just as hard as staff members to ensure all team deadlines and goals are met.
- Set 2016 up for success. Another year is on its way and now is the time to boost employee engagement. Studies show that while 80% of employers believe their employees are engaged, only 12% of employees actually feel engaged. Show appreciation to thank, motivate, and even retain great employees so that they are ready take on 2016 and make it even better than this year!
- Improve company culture. According to the SCALE, our annual salary and compensation guide, retention remains as one of the top challenges faced by employers while work-life balance and tops the employees’ work culture ‘wish list’. And happy, satisfied employees are motivated and retained employees.
- Attract great talent and customers.Taking extra steps to ensure your employees feel well take care of can go a long way to improve your company’s image. In addition to building loyalty among your employees and Temps, you are also creating a reputation for being a great place to work. With candidates now rejecting one out of five job offers, boosting your attractiveness as an employer can be, in itself, a gift that keeps on giving.
