Is Your Workplace Culture Perk-y?

When job candidates are considering a position, they often compare the employee benefits and perks that a company offers or what some call positive workplace culture. Whether it is weekly-catered breakfasts, free on-site gym memberships, or dry-cleaning services, your employees appreciate any additional benefits for their hard work. Unfortunately a 401K and health benefits may not cut it anymore, when these companies offer a few above and beyond perks:

Google

Employees are allowed to bring their dogs to the office. If a Googler passes away, their spouse receives half their salary for the next 10 years!

Apple

Beer Bash – This event is held every few weeks and offers free beer and live music.

McDonald’s

They provide help with costs associated with adopting a child under the age of 18.

Salesforce

Employees receive six days of paid volunteer time off a year, and if they use all six, they receive a $1,000 grant to donate to a charity of their choice.

Mattel

Friday half days, all year long.

Adobe

Shuts down the entire company for one week in December and one week over the summer.

If your company can afford it, take a look into rewarding your team. Inexpensive, yet unique company perks could include free smart tablets, a paid day off for birthdays, or an in-house masseuse. Focus on the company perks that are most important to you, your employees, and your workplace culture. Your company will be rewarded for it.
