Employee Perks Matter - Gender reassignment reimbursement, Pet Insurance & Concert Tickets - Here is what the best companies in the world are offering
Employee Perks MATTER. They have become part of the talent acquisition strategy and value proposition. Perks are now the difference between why a candidate will choose to spend their days with you VS company xyz.
Today's employees are asking up front about all the extras that make working for your company better than another. Whether it is an employee discount to your product or service or you are offering employees support with an area that you have are inspired by eg: Goldman Sachs offers insurance in gender reassignment surgery, Airbnb gives you a $2000 travel budget a year and Zappos provides you with free life coaching services!
Whatever your perk is, or if you are thinking about adding one, check out this list of the top 17 companies and what they are offering to get your creative juices flowing. I think it is important to look beyond the usual suspects ie: massages and gym memberships and think more broadly here. What would it look like to be more unique, brave and personal about what benefits and perks you offer?
Ask yourself the question: What can we offer that supports our people in their whole lives?
