There are so many benefits to reading, some more obvious than others. Reading keeps you caught up on the news, expands your imagination, and offers an insightful look into history. What you may not know, however, is its ability to create a better work space. There are countless benefits to encouraging reading in and outside of your work space that brings a sense of accomplishment in conjunction with reading.
BetterBookClub is a tool that does just that by ensuring that everyone in your company is encouraged to read. Essentially, BetterBookClub does this job by giving employers a space and chance to provide their employees with monetary rewards for reading books. Each book is worth a certain amount of points which ultimately means different books mean different rewards, some bigger and some smaller.
1. Create Internal Culture
One of the most important aspects of utilizing BetterBookClub in your business is its ability to create culture internally. Their website outlines the ability to develop a common vocabulary and a common sense of ideas being spread throughout the office. This not only bonds your employees, but also grows your business with new and improved ways of looking at things from bigger pictures.
2. Helps Build Knowledge
An obvious benefit to reading is its ability to expand your knowledge. If there are certain principles you believe your workforce should follow or simply have in the back of their head for future decision making processes, adding these books to your BetterBookClub list increases the chances of employees reading it. Not only this, but if there are new tools provided in books that could increase your company’s chances of success, it makes learning these tools fun and rewarding, both monetarily and mentally.
3. MONEY REWARDS!
Let’s face it - nobody could be upset at some extra cash. This benefit might just be the main reason employees start participating in BetterBookClub, but it is not the sole reason most continue to do it. Money is a great added factor, but overall the experience of learning is ultimately unmatched.
