Benefits don't necessarily need to be expensive to help retain, attract and motivate employees.

Here are some low-cost suggestions from experts:

- An occasional free lunch. The employer might even be able to write off the cost.

- Fitness club memberships. Employers often can get a business discount even if they have a relatively small number of employees.

- Fare subsidies -- free or subsidized bus tickets, for example. They're catching on in some larger cities, and may become more popular here as Fargo-Moorhead continues to grow.

- Purchasing clubs. An employer can buy a group membership in a discount retail store.

- On-site massages. Some employees swear by them.

- Leave banks. These allow employees to donate vacation or sick time to co-workers stricken with a major medical or family emergency.
