Examining Bonus Strategies

Learn about innovative options to provide bonuses, as well as how to establish an employee bonus program in compliance with applicable laws.

Obtaining and retaining employees who are motivated and loyal is a difficult task. Determining the appropriate way to appreciate your hard workers is an advantageous tool for any employer looking to boost morale and revenue. Employees have had it rough in the coronavirus day-in-age, where a majority of their time has been spent at home, at work, or at their home office. This topic will provide innovative options for employers to provide bonuses, as well as summarize how to establish and administer an employee bonus program in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Establishing the appropriate bonus plan tailored for your company will be discussed, whether you prefer to recognize individual accomplishments, team goals met, or the entire company's financial achievement.
