So at work we are looking at what perks we can introduce, and it got me thinking what other businesses do! What perks do you get at your workplace?
You might not even realise it but you could be getting so much more out of your workplace or employers than you think. A business should put employees first, but a lot of the time they tend to get lost in the pecking line when it comes to their priorities – and often not on purpose.
Whether you already get great perks or not, don’t be afraid to put your hand up and make some suggestions! After all, happy staff mean more productivity. What business doesn’t want that?? haha.
Here are some suggestions you might consider putting forward at your workplace:
1. Unlimited Leave
2. Onsite Childcare / Childcare Rebates
3. Parking Rebates
4. Play Room / Creative Spaces
5. Free Food, Drink and Coffee
6. Flexible Work Hours
8. Staff discounts or product samples
9. Birthday Leave
10. Travel opportunities
11. Staff Social Club
12. Relaxed Dress Code
13. Professional Development
15. Learning Opportunities
16. Gym membership or onsite gym
17. Laundry services /rebate
18. Office Massages
19. Googles 20% time program
20. Bring your pet to work days
21. Networking opportunities
22. Transport options
23. Extended Maternity leave
24. Matching Pay while on Maternity Leave
25. Bathrooms with showers
This is just ones I have thought of and I am sure there are so many more that I am missing.
One thing I have always wanted in my workplace is a play room / creative space. Somewhere you can go to wind down after a stressful day or even a difficult call with a client or such. Somewhere to hang out with colleagues and get away from it all for a little while.
I love a company that invests in its staff, so if yours doesn’t maybe you can make some suggestions and see where it gets you.
