A Unique Idea for Employee Productivity

Is attracting and retaining talent important to you? Then read on...

Though I've had my own business for over 20 years, I've had the great privilege and opportunity to work at some fabulous companies. 

What causes me to say that and what makes them most memorable is the type of leadership and management expressed by the extra things they did for which you felt compelled to say, "Man, I'm glad I worked there!" One of those companies was #1on the INC 500 list.

I remember walking in one day and our usually friendly receptionist greeted me with an extra wide grin. Expressing sheer joy, she pointed to the clip board on the entryway counter. "Sign up!" she exclaimed. "Sign up for what?" I asked with curiosity. "Sign up for your free massage!" "What?"...I expressed with a tinge of disbelief. "Yes, Matt hired a massage therapist to come in to give everyone a back and shoulder rub as a thank you for our hard work of late." 

I stood there with a shade of shock. I hadn't worked there long enough to learn about the kind of manager Matt was I'd come to respect and admire.

To this day, I talk about that company, their leadership, now they treated their employees and the exceptional professional experience I had. Honestly, I didn't want to leave when I did, but I had a smoldering desire to start my own thing and in support of that, they become one of my first clients.

What are you doing right now that is exceptional, memorable? Are you treating your employees in way that if they had to leave, they would regret or be sad doing so. 

In my experience this truth is invaluable - "it's in the little things".  

Here's one. Make sure the element of wellness is threaded into your company culture. It's a way of expressing you care about your human beings. After all, they are your human resource.

And, there's a company that can help you do just that! They've launched an app to provide self-care services for your employees. What an idea!

A company called REME is providing the opportunity for your company to offer services on-demand! Here are their thoughts on the matter: 
"An alarming 66 percent of employees
are losing productivity due to stress, with 25 percent of those employees experiencing
burnout at work. REME is bringing their on-demand wellness services to organizations in
order to address factors affecting stress and productivity so companies can take care of their our modern, “always on” world, people experience a disconnect between work and personal life, as they feel the need to always be connected to work. Self-care or wellness usually takes a backseat. 

How about you, as a company leader, bring it back to the fore-front as corporate value.

In experience and with the clients I work with, caring leaders are mindful of this streaming demand and demonstrate a sensitivity to it. With that in mind, REME offers a tailored corporate wellness service including such things as massage, IV drip, and stretch services.

Successful REME corporate wellness events and programs have already been initiated at companies including WeWork, Dentsu Aegis Network, Pepsi and many more. REME’s services are currently available across California in Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco, with plans to expand to more regions by the end of the year.  

Remember, the talent pool is tight! A small investment now could very well prove to be financially smart for the future.
