Filling employees stomachs for free is one of the easiest ways to their hearts, whether its a complimentary breakfast club, laying on sandwiches for lunch or installing a snack station.
For companies with a larger budget, a private health care plan for each employee could show a reassuring long-term commitment to your staff.
Around core daytime hours, allowing staff to start and finish an hour or two earlier or later could provide the flexibility they need to maintain other commitments.
Some businesses will chose to ditch suits and uniforms and replace them with a more relaxed approach that allows employees to wear whatever they feel most comfortable in, as long as its not inappropriate.
An increasing number of companies are choosing to close early on a Friday or socialise as a team to start the weekend.
Larger businesses can use their contacts and bulk buying possibilities to enter partnerships with other local companies to offer staff discounts.
Being careful to consider existing employees opinions, an office dog or invitation to bring your own pet in from time to time could entice future staff.
Events and experiences that create fun memories and allow colleagues to get to know each other better as individuals can be a key contributor to a work environment that is attractive to prospective new members.
Personal fitness is increasingly a priority for millennials and the middle-aged alike, so companies that lend a hand in this area could be more appealing to possible new hires.
Many office spaces could attract new talent by providing a fun room full of pool or ping pong tables, video games or whatever entertainment people want.
