These companies have the best employee perks in the world
When it comes to finding a job, most of us are willing to take the first thing that comes our way. After all, we have bills to pay and student loans to pay off — and it’s super expensive being a human. But the older we get, the more we start to realize that the perks of a job are almost as important as the paycheck itself. According to Glassdoor, nearly 3 in 5 people report that job perks are one of their top considerations when accepting a job — so the company decided to do a round-up of the top 20 companies with amazing employee benefits. Check out the top 10 below, and the rest over at Glassdoor.
The company has an extremely generous parental leave policy, offering one year of paid maternity and/or paternity leave to new parents. Once the year is, they’re extremely flexible with allowing employees to return either part-time or full-time, and with giving time off as needed.
The sporting goods company is all about the great outdoors, and offers two paid “Yay Days” a year for employees to go explore their favorite activities.
In the spirit of giving back, Salesforce gives its employees six paid days a year to do volunteer work; and if an employee uses all of them, they get a $1,000 grant for a charity of their choice.
Like Netflix, Spotify is dedicated to helping new parents. They give six months of paid maternal and/or paternal leave, flexible time off for parents after their leave is up, and helps cover the cost of egg freezing and fertility treatments.
