Your employer can help you, both inside and outside of work, in more ways than one. To see exactly how this can be done and what they can do to help you, make sure to read on.
They can help you manage your stress in the workplace
Of course, the first place that your employer can and should be helping you is in your shared place of work. But, they can help you in more ways than just ensuring you keep on track with your daily allotted work. No, they can also help you to keep calm and stress free as you progress through this work, too. They can do so by showing that they value you, especially when your workload is extensive; by ensuring jobs are specifically designed and flexible in regards to your specific needs and demands; and by ensuring that you get all the healthcare you need and are entitled to.
They can help you save for retirement
Whether you’re in your twenties, your thirties, your forties, your fifties or your sixties, you should have some sort of idea of how exactly you plan to fund your retirement (if you’re in your fifties or sixties, then you most certainly should have). But, you don’t have to come up with these ideas and plans yourself. No, your employer can help you. Specifically, they can help you by agreeing to pay into what is known as a ROTH Individual Retirement Account (IRA). This type of IRA is one that can be opened up for both you and your employer to pay into with ease, and when it comes to paying into it you should consider matching or even bettering what your employer pays into it. By doing this your retirement kitty will grow tenfold, and then you’ll be able to withdraw it as tax-free cash come the day you retire.
They can help you in a host of current day financial situations too
Yes, your employer doesn’t just have to help you save for your future retirement as they can help you to successfully circumvent your current day finances, too. One way in which they can do this is through novated car leasing. If you’re unsure as to what this means, here is what a novated lease is and consists of: it is a legal agreement that is split three ways between you, the car dealership you purchased your car from and your employer in which you do not pay for the running costs of the car — these costs are covered by your employer. By doing this you do not have to be hit with unexpected car bills, such as those needed for new tyres or a new battery, in order to get yourself to work. And this works in the favour of both you and your employer: you stand to save on car costs and your employer will know that transportation problems will never be a problem for you when it comes to getting into work.
If you’re an employer, then make sure to take heed of what is above and try to implement them into your employee relations tactics; by doing so you will increase morale in your workplace twofold. If you’re an employee, then remember the points above so that when you find yourself in a sticky situation, both in and out of work, you know just exactly how your employer can help you out.
And remember, your boss might not be so horrible after all.
