Benefits small business owners can offer employees for a happier and more “connected” work environment

Birthday off with pay:  After being with the company one year, our employees received their birthday off paid each year.  If it fell on a week end or holiday, they were able to pick another day to have off.

Educational and fun company trip paid by employer:  As a financial planning and asset management company, I took the staff to New York City to tour the NY stock exchange and other work and non-work related places.  All expenses were paid by me including meals, entrance fees, transportation, and regular pay. 

Movie and/or Lottery Tickets:  The office manager was given a supply of movie and lottery tickets to keep on hand.  Any time a staff person did something “above and beyond” he rewarded them with a “little free gift”.
