A massive 75% of women with dependent children are employed. Juggling work and family life isn’t easy. Over the course of the pandemic, life has been made even harder with 59% of working mums saying they had a decline in mental health overall. But you can do a few simple things to make any parent’s or caregiver’s life a little easier as an employer.
Using rewards and recognition is vital to the wellbeing and engagement of your people and can be a great way to celebrate calendar events such as Mother’s Day.
Recognise Working Mums with an Ecard
An accessible, practical and fun way to start is with an Ecard. Sending an Ecard to say thank you for your hard work can be done from any location and at any time. Additionally, having a range of exciting designs allows you to remain diverse and inclusive. 69% of employees suggest that they would work harder if they felt their efforts were better recognised. Therefore, sending an Ecard even helps to increase workers’ efficiency.
Secondly, Ecards are an incredibly eco-conscious way to send recognition in the workplace. So, if your company is looking to improve its carbon footprint and help the environment, Ecards are the perfect answer.
Duvet Days with Kids in Half Term
Give the working parents in your company a duvet day with their family during half term. Quality time allows them to see their children and recuperate from the long weeks. As a result, they return feeling refreshed and appreciated, ready to face the work ahead. On top of this, it can relieve some financial pressure for finding care during half terms.
Money Off Working Mums Food Shopping
Family food shops can take a massive chunk out of monthly pay-checks. As an employer, you could send them an employee voucher from one of the UK’s top supermarkets to say well done; you’ve worked hard.
Send Some Eco-points
If you want to avoid traditional presents such as flowers, and remain exciting or just a little different, you could send some Eco-points. Therefore, allowing your employee to pick their reward. Gifts to employees don’t have to be predictable. Furthermore, they may even choose to save their eco-points for a rainy day. Here at Each Person, we give an incredible 6% interest p.a on Epoints balances, helping your people create healthy financial wellbeing.
In short, there are several perks and work you can offer to benefit everyone throughout the year. Rewards are multifaceted, helping to show their appreciation and aiding hidden issues like money worries. Never underestimate the power of rewards and recognition.
