Cultivate the Company Garden with a Culture Boost

Posted on: May 13th, 2022 by New Benefits

When supporting employee growth is top of mind, it can be helpful to think of the company as a garden. A company, just like a garden, has its own ecosystem, and company health suffers when that balance is off. The good news is that companies can correct these imbalances with a culture boost that is meaningful to employees–no horticultural experience required.

Employees are a company’s greatest asset

A garden isn’t a garden without plants, and the same is true for companies; they just can’t function without their employees, so they should always remember that their employees are their greatest asset. To build an effective culture boost, companies should ask themselves, “Does our benefits package match the value of our employees?”

Nurtured employees stay rooted

The current job market climate gives employees a level of choice in employers they haven’t seen in decades. But, when employees feel valued, they tend to stick around. So, show employees that the grass isn’t greener on the other side–invest in employees, and they will invest in the company.

Basic benefits are no longer enough

Benefits like health insurance, paid time off, and 401ks have become the norm, and employees expect them as a standard part of any benefits package. They are no longer considered extra perks. If companies want to compete for top talent, they need to do more than just “water” their garden.

Pandemic has strained employees

The global pandemic has stretched us all in ways no one could have imagined over the last two years. So, in direct response to the hardships they’ve experienced throughout the health crisis, employees are now reevaluating what’s important to them. They are looking for more hospitable conditions within companies that will support them.

Enrich company culture with nurturing benefits

Benefits like counseling, financial wellness, caregiver support, and health advocacy offer employees the support they need to live happy and healthy lives outside the office. In turn, employees will become more effective and productive within the company. It is this virtuous cycle that helps maintain a balanced ecosystem, and will attract and retain employees.
