For many companies, the Corona crisis has shown that it is precisely the flexibility and willingness of employees to perform that can carry a company through economically difficult times. In addition to the new professional challenges, many employees working from home have also incurred new issues. Whether energy costs, internet tariffs or new furniture for the office at home: The home office has also had a financial impact on employees. Not only have many employers recognized this fact, but also the legislature: employers were originally able to pay a special corona payment of € 1,500 to each employee tax-free until December 31, 2020. Now this deadline has been extended to June 2021.
When employees give a lot for their company, get involved, think for themselves and sometimes go the extra mile, you want to be valued for it. No wonder, then, that in many representative surveys, the most common reason given for termination is a lack of recognition by the manager. Especially in times of corona, lockdown and home office, in which many employees not only have to work at home, but often also have to bring household and children under one roof, a small recognition by the employer is worth more than gold.
