Give a Day Off/Work From Home


Direct an employee to either take the day off or work from home. This is a great reward as compensation time for someone who has been putting in extra time to meet a deadline or is otherwise working to support the team's goals.

Why We Do It

Setting expectations with your employees is always important. Key among those expectations should be whether you expect effort (i.e., time spent) or results. Examining this question may inform you a lot about your company’s values and culture.

When employees go above and beyond your expectations, it makes sense to reward them. For some of the people on your team, time off may be something they especially value. And while almost everyone enjoys time off, not everyone would make time off their number one choice as a reward, so consider other actions based on employees’ values.
