The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things about daily life. One of the biggest changes has been the increase in employees working from home. Some people thrive while working at home; others struggle to stay productive. At home there may be more distractions for some, or less distractions for others. Some employees may have their own home office with a closing door, while others are doing their best to work in a bedroom or at the dining room table. If the kids are at home instead of school, that’s another potential difficulty.
As a business owner who employs others, benefits are an important consideration. You are required to offer some benefits by federal and state law in certain situations, but others are perks that can improve employee satisfaction and help you to attract talent.
