It’s March and almost everyone I know is talking about employee salary appraisals. All those talks about deadlines, goals, targets etc has got me curious and I’ve been trying to understand what is all the hurry and excitement about.
Many organizations (and maybe yours) give employees good perks such as free lunches, paid maternity leaves, unlimited vacation days, etc. Some organizations may go a step further and offer other perks such as stock options, housekeeping services, travel stipends, etc. These perks are great for employee motivation and employee retention. However, these material perks alone are not going to cut it, especially if they lack a personal touch.
