Employee perks are one of the most important practices a company can implement.
Whether those perks come in the form of a free snack bar, the option to work from home, company retreats, or reduced-rate evening classes, employee perks show workers that businesses care about their wellbeing.
Lately, companies like REI, Salesforce, Twitter, and Evernote have made headlines for offering perks like paid volunteer time, free cooking classes, and three catered meals a day. However, businesses with fewer resources can still offer budget-friendly employee perks that make a big impact.
We surveyed 507 full-time employees and found that perks increase workers’ efficiency, decrease turnover, and improve company culture overall. Companies of all sizes should look into ways that they can support their employees both inside and outside of work.
