Facebook, Google, Netflix, and other top companies in the US are competing for the best talent out there.
To compete, they offer some of the best benefits and perks around.
See which companies are raising the bar and going beyond free food, on-site gyms, and 401(k)s to attract new talent.
Most of us spend a majority of our waking hours at work, so it’s only natural that we want to enjoy our time in the office as much as we can. And perks help — a lot.
According to career site Glassdoor, more than half (57%) of all workers say perks and benefits are among the top things they consider when deciding whether to accept a job, and almost 80% of employees say they would prefer new benefits over a pay raise.
That’s why some employers are raising the bar and going beyond standard vacation days, health insurance benefits, and 401k matching to attract top talent.
Companies like Airbnb and Google are offering unique and surprising perks like travel stipends and death benefits, Glassdoor reports, while Facebook and Netflix have upped the ante for companies wanting to support new parents.
“Benefits and perks matter because they’re an added piece of the total compensation puzzle,” Scott Dobroski, Glassdoor’s career trends analyst, told Business Insider. “Job seekers should understand what benefits and perks an employer may be offering, and do their research ahead of time to find companies that offer benefits that matter most to them.”
Employees rated some of their favorite employee benefits on Glassdoor. The following perks are not only unique, but they also received a rating of at least 4.0 out of 5.0 on Glassdoor.
