How to Deliver an In-Office Perk to Remote Employees

with Jennifer Calderon

The Growing your Team Podcast: Episode 123


Running a business with remote employees often eliminates the perks and sense of team found in in-office jobs. Remote staff can often feel left out, forgotten, and only valued for their work output and not as a person.

As a business owner, there are simple steps you can take to make your employees feel valued and appreciated. Ones that make them feel a part of the team no matter where they are located. And when employees feel like they are a valued part of a team, they are more likely to stay a part of your company. 

One way to make your remote team members feel valued is by taking typical in-office perks and delivering them in a new way to your remote team members. Jennifer Calderon shares how her company is fulfilling this need and creating a customizable perks experience that will make your employee feel valued and take your business to the next level.

You wrote a job posting for your open position, but will it attract the right candidates?

When it’s time to hire, all you need to do is tell people you’re hiring and the perfect candidate will show up ready to be hired… right?

Unfortunately, hiring doesn’t work that way. Especially in the current market.

The best candidates are only applying to the positions that appear to be the right fit for them. If they don’t find a connection between their job wants and your job posting, they will skip over your opportunity and move on to the next.

In many cases, the reality is, it’s not that the job isn’t what they are looking for, it’s that the job posting doesn’t hit the mark.

Is your job posting helping candidates see that your opening is the right job for them or is it turning candidates away for all the wrong reasons?
