in Employee Benefits Program,Human Resources

Health insurance and flextime aren’t the only perks employees consider benefits. Most of the companies that won “Best and Brightest” awards from the National Association for Business Re­­sources earned accolades from their employees for:

  • Using tools like an intranet, webcasts and blogs to communicate with em­­ployees.
  • Including internal job postings and referral bonuses in their recruitment and retention programs.
  • Encouraging employees to participate in skills training via webinars and podcasts.
  • Sponsoring local charitable activities or conducting on-site activities such as blood donations and food drives.
  • Hosting or sponsoring activities that celebrate multiculturalism and diversity, or creating written diversity statements.

The Best and Brightest awards honor Midwest employers that use innovative human resource practices. The awards are based on employee surveys.

Interesting findings. Social collaboration tools, such as a company intranet, are increasingly becoming indispensable in the workplace.
