Perks That Are Permanent: Increase Employee Retention for Good

Updated: Nov 25, 2022

Employers don’t want to just hire great candidates; they want to increase employee retention. And one of the easiest ways to do that is with an Evergreen Refreshment’s Micro Market. So what is a micro market? It’s an upscale convenience store experience right in your own breakroom. Your employees can purchase beverages, breakfast items, snacks, and lunch: all in one location. While many companies offer tons of perks, not many of them are tangible and visible on a daily basis. That’s where a micro market comes in! 

Celebrate your Team’s Success

There are endless celebrations to take care of: birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and well, you get the picture. You can create custom coupons that your team uses in the micro market as a way to reward them. They come in $5, $10, and $20 and can be fully customized with your logo and brand style. It’s a great way to recognize your team’s milestones! Other micro market rewards:

  1. Happy Hour discounts on select items

  2. Quarterly giveaways that include: headphones, speakers, bikes, gift cards, and more

  3. New items every month, including seasonal flavors and trending foods

  4. Combo deals so your team can get more goodies for less 

Variety Increases Satisfaction

There are hundreds (and we mean HUNDREDS) of options for your team to enjoy. Beverages include flavored waters, kombuchas, juices, energy drinks, carbonated beverages, and bottled coffee options. In the mood for a snack? We got you covered with everything from chocolate, jerky to protein bars and cheeses. Hungry for more? We have breakfast and lunch items: egg bites, yogurts, sandwiches, salads, and way more. Name a product, and we likely carry it. And if we don’t, we can make it happen.

Convenience Means Better Work/Life Balance

Forget the morning drive-thru and taking an hour or more on your lunch break. The micro market is readily available right in your breakroom. Other ways we keep things simple:

  1. Multiple ways to pay

  2. Ability to look at nutritional content before purchasing items

  3. Security System and virtually no service calls

  4. Foods to fit a variety of diets and preferences 

  5. Available 24/7 to cover extensive schedules and long hours 

Other Retention Strategies to Consider

  1. Robust onboarding training and orientation

  2. Open communication and feedback on performance

  3. Flexible work schedules and remote options

  4. Mentorship Programs 

A micro market is a tangible perk that helps increase employee retention in multiple ways. With a micro market, your organization will be the talk of the town, and never underestimate the power of word of mouth when hiring and retaining talent. Oh, and did we mention that a micro market is completely free to your organization? It doesn’t get cheaper than free!
