According to research from ERE Media, 65 percent of adults look at new jobs within 91 days of starting a new job, and 44 percent subscribe to job alerts, employed or not. Therefore a heighten focus should be placed on why people are leaving?

The easy answer is more money. But, in trying business conditions, that might not be feasible. Not only that, employees want more than just monetary benefits --- they want perks that can make life easier. As stated in a recent HR Magazine article, "Offering perks that provide financial relief can be a powerful recruitment and retention tool, even if employers aren't willing to increase salaries."

A Perk That Provides Financial Relief - Employee Discounts

Every company wants to increase employee engagement and motivation. Several factors impact whether or not an employee will be loyal to a company and will go above and beyond for that company, but perhaps above all else, employees just want to be recognized and appreciated.

That's where viperks comes in --- we help build your culture by offering an easy way to say “thank you”, by saving your employees time and money on products they need and want.

Our online branded “company store” platform provides  employees exclusive access to a  discount shopping experience guaranteed to be cheaper than Amazon.

How do we make that happen?

viperks' merchandising team scours the market place, researches the trends, shops the trade shows, and analyzes the competition to determine the best deal, so we can beat it! Your employees save time and money, and thus, their morale is boosted. And when morale is up, people tend to work harder and become more connected to your company.

It’s no secret. Benefits make employees feel appreciated. Employees that feel appreciated are loyal and productive. Loyal and productive employees want to stay put.
