If you are lucky enough to run your own virtual business and have a team of freelancers or contracted employees who work for your remotely, it is vital that you know how to keep them on board.

Finding new team members, especially when you work remotely (and so do they) isn’t easy. That’s why when you have got a good team; it is vital that you do everything that you can to retain them. Perks or benefits could be the answer to this, but the question is, what can you offer when your whole team works from the comfort of their own homes?

If you are a momtrepreneur wanting to hold onto her team by showing them how much you value their work, offering perks is a great option. It’s just a case of determining what it would be best to offer. To help you do that, below are some ideas and suggestions - have a read and see what you think!

Health related perks

You can’t go wrong with health related perks. By offering your team perks such as health, life and dental insurance, you can make it more likely that they will continue working for you. The fact is that healthcare can be expensive, which is why so many people choose to work for companies that offer health perks, as it helps to make life more affordable. As well as offering the regular health perks, what about offering some wellness ones too? Things like vouchers for spa days, for instance, to encourage your team to take care of their wellness as well as their mental health, can work well. Or, what about offering gym memberships for your remote workers, as a way of encouraging them to be more active?  

Fun benefits

When it comes to fun perks, it’s a case of thinking outside of the box. From sending each team members a birthday cake and gift on their birthday to having meals delivered to their homes while they work, there are plenty of fun and unique perks that you can offer your team. You could also run annual company retreats, where the whole team meets up at a spa, hotel, or outdoor activity facility for a weekend of team building. The more creative that you can be with the perks that you offer, the better.

Educational allowances

To demonstrate to your team that you are passionate about encouraging their learning, offer educational allowances. This could mean giving each team member a budget for education each year, such as taking online classes. It could also mean arranging for team members to attend courses across the country, or to intern at suitable corporations to help improve their experience in a certain area.

Just because your team works remotely from home, that doesn’t mean that employee perks are unnecessary. To ensure that your team members are as happy and content as possible, offering them a range of benefits is something that is worth doing.
