As an employee, there are several ways your company can show that they prioritize your happiness, health, and well-being both in and out of the office. For Employee Appreciation Day (March 6), we gathered some tell-tale signs of companies that value their employees, from supporting their professional growth to investing in their personal development as both a worker and a colleague.
Here are 5 little ways you know your company cares:
They offer corporate wellness programs
Corporate wellness programs like Gympass encourage employees to get active and stay healthy. Gympass gives you access to thousands of gyms and studios worldwide with just one monthly membership. Whether you travel for work, love a lunchtime workout, or start your morning routine at the gym near your office, Gympass fits your lifestyle.
They make sure you’re comfortable (and stay healthy) at the office
Many companies cover the costs of standing desks or supplies to make all that desk-sitting a bit more comfortable. Some take care of their employees by providing yearly flu shots at the office. And if they really want to help fuel their employees, they’ll offer healthy snacks to munch on throughout the day (and maybe even a company lunch on Employee Appreciation Day).
They make it easy to find a mentor
Having a good mentor has been proven to reduce stress and decrease the risk of burnout at work. You don’t have to have a mentorship program at the office to find one, but companies that help match experienced and newer employees show they value the importance of these office connections.
They encourage you to volunteer
When your company allows time off for you to volunteer, you know they care about your life outside of the office as well as the local community. Many companies host an office-wide volunteer day, which is a great way to give back and boost morale.
They invest in your growth
There’s plenty to learn at the office, but employees who are empowered to take courses and participate in trainings can learn even more. When your company invests in your growth, they invest in the growth of the company at large, so it’s a win-win.
