When you’re searching for a new job, there’s more to it than looking for a nice salary or even an easy commute. The best brands are attracting talented workers with impressive incentives programs that will improve your quality of life—so make sure you’re not selling yourself short with shoddy benefits.
Here are some of the job perks that employees really want:
- Childcare and parental leave are a lifesaver for working mums and dads. Some companies provide onsite daycare to offset the cost of placing kids in an outside facility. Others offer months of parental leave or “baby cash” bonuses to help new parents with expenses.
- Remote work lets you do your job from the comfort of your favorite location, whether that’s your home, a local coffee shop, or even just a new spot in your office building. This saves you tons of time and money on commuting.
- Freebies can include services, like a concierge who runs your errands while you work. But since not all companies can afford to keep an assistant at your beck and call, look for smaller perks too. Gift cards or subscriptions delivered in a branded card holder can go a long way toward improving morale and sparking your loyalty to the company.
