Could implementing concierge into our employee benefits help with greater productivity and efficiency? The team from Skyhigh.Vip ponders.
The word ‘concierge’ has often been perceived as a luxury especially for wealthy individuals buying super-yachts and living in expensive mansions but this stereotype does not strictly ring true.
The concierge industry is no longer just a luxury service anymore. In fact, it’s a remedy for Millennials to balance out their personal and professional lives.
Employers can offer a dedicated team or outsourced concierge companies to assist with a range of lifestyle focused services, to their employees across the board.
These services normally fall under three categories:
- Personal – gift sourcing, organising a cleaner, health, beauty and fitness assistance,
- Social – sourcing and booking any tickets or restaurant reservations,
- Travel – researching the best personalised holiday package, booking flights and accommodations or customised holiday planning.
For example, a high salaried executive who works long hours in sectors such as financial services, may require more time-saving services such as gift sourcing or tailored holiday bookings. However, employees who work at retail stores or F&B industries might be more interested in concert tickets and events.
The question is – Why are we not implementing concierge into our employee benefits when all these big industry players are doing it for greater productivity and efficiency?
