Benefits, perks and recognition – be it monetary or verbal – are all valued means of showing employees that management cares for their morale.
And with more and more companies vying against each other for the most outlandish and expensive benefits packages, the question of how to best to show appreciation to staff is being raised frequently by concerned bosses.

Research by recruiter Michael Page found that 82% of Brits think that their workplace benefits packages are outdated nightmares. Of the 1,000 surveyed, 64% believe that their employer is ploughing money into expensive benefits they don’t want, need or use. Rather than gimmicks, such as free massages, which were cited, 70% wanted practical benefits.
