Culture at the workplace seems to be almost as important as the paycheck these days. Things have definitely changed and companies are getting creative to keep employees happy. Jimmy Rhoades and Hire Story’s Theresa Maher are taking a look at four awesome and unusual perks that are becoming a real thing at offices across the nation.
1. Unlimited Time Off
Companies like General Electric Co., Grub Hub and Netflix track employees' output, not their hours. Companies seem to get more out of their employees when they have an incentive to get the work done at their level at their pace, and then be able to go home and do whatever you want.
2. Paid Weddings
How many more people are going to suddenly get married that maybe weren't planning on it?
3. Student Loan Assistance
In a perk aimed squarely at millennials, companies like Kronos, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Fidelity will help employees pay off their student loans. This is a huge draw for those young minds ready to work hard.
4. Paid Puppy Leave
Finally, the cutest company benefit of all is time off for puppy adoption. The payback for a perk like this is in marketing. You're going get the word-of-mouth, you're going get the buzz, and you're going to have happy employees, so it's kind of a win-win.
