3 Workplace Perks Part-time Workers Want Right Now
In some cases, part-time employees don’t qualify for benefits packages. In others, they are only offered limited perks. Employers can consider offering benefits that speak directly to the unique needs of part-time workers. Here are three to think about:
- Scheduling Power
Scheduling autonomy is a huge perk for part-time employees. These workers might not work full time for a variety of reasons, scheduling conflicts chief among them. Allowing part-time employees to choose when they work can be a huge attraction and retention tool.
- Early Wage Access
This is when an employee receives money they earned a few days ahead of their normal pay date. This early access can lead to greater overall employee productivity and well-being, as it saves employees from seeking high-interest loans that can lead to further debt. Moreover, since the employees have already earned the money they’re gaining access to, there is little risk to employers.
- Streamlined Communication Solutions
Employers can consider streamlining communication using a consistent technology platform, such as a company webpage or app. On such a platform, employers could post scheduling information and communicate directly with employees in one spot rather than using individuals’ personal emails.
Part-time workers can be just as important to businesses as full-time employees. Offering workplace perks that speak to part-time employees’ unique needs can be critical for productivity, well-being and retention.
