With unemployment at an all time low and the demands of work increasing, companies are continuously looking for services and products to improve office culture, and keep employees healthy, energized and engaged. This has led to some pretty exciting new ideas, as well as ways of rethinking existing employee benefits. There's more to employee benefits than ping pong tables or beer in the break room (although there's nothing wrong with those).
We're headed to the PERKS Convention on May 2. This is a unique event for anyone that is responsible for managing employee benefits (i.e., HR, Facilities, Office Admins). PERKS showcases all kinds of products, services and amenities for employees. If you're able to join us at PERKS, we'd love to see you (visit us at booth 158). But if you can't make it, these are a few companies offering some cool office perks.
