Gadgets & Equipment Benefit for Employees

What began as a step to ensure employee wellbeing during the outbreak of Covid-19, is set to be the norm in the coming times. Several organizations across different sectors have even been rolling out WFH allowances and other benefits for their employees who are ensuring business continuity and growth while operating remotely.

One of the major issues faced by employees while working from their homes is the unavailability of proper workspace setup. The lack of ergonomic chairs, tables, laptops, erratic internet, power cuts, etc. can lead to backaches, eyes and neck aches, stress because of prolonged sitting, causing occupational hazards in many cases. Adding to this are productivity issues that arise because of technical glitches.

With that in mind, corporates have been extending Wi-Fi allowance, BYOD benefit, Home Office Furniture Allowances etc. where they give employees Digital Gadgets and Equipment Allowances to buy necessary equipment, office furniture and enable the right infrastructure at home. Some have also started collaborating with furniture rental apps to home-deliver ergonomic chairs and desks. Competitive employee benefits like these can help retain top talent and enhance overall employee experiencein the work from anywhere age.
