Offering perks such as free meals and long vacations can lift staff morale, but it's much more important to make sure your employees feel engaged with their jobs, according to research by Gallup. "If you're engaged, you know what's expected of you at work, you feel connected to people you work with and you want to be there," Gallup's Jim Harter said. "You feel a part of something significant, so you're more likely to want to be part of a solution, to be part of a bigger tribe."
