Successful companies are realizing that making an employee feel valued goes beyond delivering a paycheck. Employers that help their employees create work-life balance, encourage them to learn career skills, and give them flexible schedules, are the ones at the forefront of attracting and retaining top talent.
We want you to help your employees reach their full potential. That’s why we’ve curated a massive list of employee perks and perk vendors that any HR and People Ops professional should consider, whether you're developing a stipend program from scratch or if you're looking to make significant improvements to how perks work at your company. This resource will help you upgrade your company's fringe benefits.
From meditation apps and ping pong tables to breast milk shipping, we have a long list of employee perks for you. While some of these may be already implemented in your organization, like generous parental leave and employee well-being programs, keep an open mind for some of the nontraditional ones that can be just as meaningful to your team.
Employees have different preferences, needs, and lifestyles. Do your best to add a different employee perk into your mix. Here is our list:
Instead of picking individual perks, consider taking a new approach. Whether it's an all-inclusive lifestyle spending account or a few stipends to support your company's values, our goal is to help you make the best decision for your team. Check out our comparison graphic to make your decision easier.
Choosing an employee perk and vendor can be a difficult task, especially when there are endless options and you want to deliver the best possible one to your employees as part of their lifestyle benefits. But because employees are different from each other, there is no one "perfect and cool" perk that will make everyone happy.
Don't sweat it!
We want to help you make the right decision so we've compiled a list of resources to help you choose the best perks:
Flexibility: Who doesn't like having the flexibility to work in their optimal environment? Trust your employees by giving them the flexibility to choose their work location and hours, and they'll feel more motivated and eager to work.
Wellness Initiatives: Our bodies are temples, so we should treat them that way! It's a good feeling to know your workplace cares about your health. Through company-organized initiatives and programs that are focused on true wellness, employees become more appreciated, more mindful, and of course, more productive.
The best companies are those that recognize that their employees are all different and that their perks should be too. These organizations are now adopting Lifestyle Spending Accounts(LSAs). With LSAs, employees are given an employer-contributed account for them to purchase whatever perks are best for them and their needs.
