Generous employee benefits or perks are not only fantastic ways to attract top-notch talent
and become the employer of choice, but they're also an effective method of taking excellent care of your people. A survey by Glassdoor found that nearly 60 percent of employees classify benefits and perks as a top consideration for accepting a job.
If you want your team to thrive, retain their creativity, and avoid burnout, implementing tactics
to break the monotony of the day-to- day grind is highly recommended. And it doesn't have to
be extravagant or cost you a fortune. It really is the little things that matter most in keeping your crew motivated and engaged.
I recently asked a group of employees — a mix of both part- and full-time staff — what their
favorite employer-provided benefits and perks are. Here are the top 50 responses.
