03/24/2017: A WINNING OFFER OF EMPLOYMENT
When you make an offer to a new employee at any level, you do yourself a huge disservice if all you talk about is the pay. A position with your company is much more than just what goes into the bank account at the end of the day – it’s also about benefits, perks and job satisfaction. And it’s about career progression, if that is available in your company. When talking with a potential employee, address the "total offer package," not the hourly rate or salary. Include vacation/PTO, health benefits and other insurance specifically mentioning company contributions, your 401K program and how much your company contributes, education support and training, ability to be considered for any internal job openings, and progression through supervisory roles. Also make sure to mention company events such as Casual or Jean Days, charity support/donations, annual company picnic or Christmas party. And what you do for employee birthdays or anniversaries. Remember, you are trying to convince this terrific individual to accept a position with your company so you pull out everything you can so they choose YOU. Your company is more than just a paycheck; it’s where they’ll spend more of their time than what they do at home with their family…they have to want to be there too.
