The Importance of Employee Benefits

The Importance of Employee BenefitsAs a nonprofit, having employee benefits ensures that your employees stay, as well as attracting the best of the best.

Employee benefits allow businesses to recruit and retain top of the line employees, shooing away those other companies that want to poach your workers. It also adds positive company culture, and makes employees healthy and happy. By having employee benefits, your nonprofit is sure to stand out among the rest, and potential employees will come buzzing to your business—like moths to a light.

What are the common employee benefits?

While each business is unique and has its own needs, there are some that almost all nonprofits have.

  • Healthcare
  • Workers Compensation
  • Social Security Taxes
  • Vacation and holiday time off
  • Retirement Plans
  • Individual Retirement Account (IRA)
  • Workplace Perks


You can use employee benefits to save you money as well! Sound counterintuitive? The cost of hiring and training employees and waiting for them to get up to speed can be quite expensive. By keeping your employees happy, you don’t have to hire employees often, and you’ll save money!


Whether you want to create a company culture or not, you’re going to have one. It’s much easier to hold a nonprofit together when the culture surrounding everyone is a positive one. The benefits that you provide to your employees is going to have a drastic effect on the culture that is associated with your business.

Nonprofits are held best when everyone is on the same page, and striving to the same goal with the same attitude.
