You’ve got employees you want to show your appreciation to and the profits to support it. You’re thinking about offering benefits but don’t know where to start. Benefits are a great way to support your employees beyond their paycheck. Be sure to talk with a local attorney before deciding on any one of these options, as there may be specific ways you need to set them up for your staff. Also, consult with your accountant before offering any benefits to ensure you can afford it. It is much harder to take a benefit away than it is to add. They can also walk you through setting up a structure around expectations (like minimum hours worked) to qualify for certain benefits. Further, consider getting a human resource (HR) adviser involved to aid in setting up and communicating benefits to your employees. They can be an excellent resource for determining which benefits to provide, making sure your benefits are clearly defined in your employee handbook, and ensuring that your policies are non-discriminatory.
