Three Bonuses to Start Giving Your Team…That Aren’t Money

April 16th, 2019

When hiring accountants in Spokane or Seattle, it would be nice to mention cash bonuses as a perk of working for your company, but right now, that isn’t in your budget. Thankfully, there’s plenty of other ways to entice candidates and make current employees feel valued that don’t cost a thing.

Thoughtful and creative, non-monetary bonuses are a win for everyone. Your team gets showered with appreciation and you’re able to do this without spending a dime. This is a great way to boost morale, and show employees how much you appreciate all the hard work they do for the company.

Here are three ideas guaranteed to be a hit.

Designated Prime Parking Spot

It rains a lot in Washington, so scoring a coveted parking spot is a huge win. On a weekly or monthly basis, choose an employee who has gone above and beyond expectations to reward with the parking spot. This is a great way to show appreciation to your top achievers, while motivating the rest of the team to do their best work.

Handwritten Thank You Notes

Beyond taking notes in a meeting, you probably haven’t used a pen and paper for much in recent years. These days, most messages are sent through email, which makes handwritten notes really special. When an employee does something outstanding, show appreciation by sitting down and actually writing a note. This kind gesture will almost certainly catch them off guard, and make them feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Extra Vacation Days

If you have the coverage to manage it, rewarding employees with an extra vacation day(s) — paid, of course — will be a huge hit. No matter how much they enjoy their jobs, everyone appreciates a little extra leisure time. This can be a bonus given to your entire team or something you dole out on an individual basis to celebrate notable successes.
