Examples of companies with amazing benefits
America’s economy is roaring back to life, which is amazing considering that just a year ago it was completely crippled by the COVID pandemic.
And as the economy gets going that means that companies are going to be competing more and more with each other to hire the best candidates.
When the marketing is in the hands of the job-seekers, that means that they have more power to negotiate, especially when they’re receiving multiple offers.
Employers know this (or at least they should), and smart employers will do well to find ways to communicate and position their company as the best company to work for. The best way to do this is to showcase your companies benefits and perks. And folks, it’s going to take more than simply regurgitating the same cliche’ phrase about great health benefits and paid time off. If you think that good health benefits and paid time off is a perk, you’re stuck in the 1990s, my friend. Today, you’re going to have to do better. Companies that are catching attention are companies with perks like: Free catered food during the workday, on-site gyms, gym memberships, free on-site daycare, free annual cruises, and more!
Here are some examples of companies that have eye-popping benefits:
Google: Employees are given an incredible amount of perks to include massages, oil changes, car washes, and more! They even give you $12,000 in tuition reimbursement.
Melaleuca: Offers longevity bonuses to employees every five years. These bonuses are given to employees as a reward for their loyalty. It has nothing to do with performance. Just showing up! By the time an employee reaches 30 years of employment, their longevity bonuses should have created a nest egg (if invested and not spent) that will pay some pretty nice retirement dividends!
Ernst & Young: One of the great perks about working for Ernst & Young is you have access to a company-paid concierge service.
Yahoo!: Yahoo! is an example of one of many companies that has figured out how much employees like having access to an on-site gym facility. Not only does Yahoo! have a workout gym, but they have volleyball and basketball courts.
