Let’s Break Down the Effectiveness of Office Perks

October 03, 2016

By now, most of us have heard of Google's seemingly endless list of office perks: from free meals to laundry service to napping areas. Businesses are right to offer their employees extras to attract and retain talent. However, the effectiveness of employee perks is as varied as the people they aim to impress. If you’re considering implementing office perks, keep in mind that effective perks should:

  • Promote Engagement: According to Gallup's most recent State of the American Workplace report, the most important indicator of employee satisfaction is engagement. That is good news for companies that do not have the infrastructure or budget to offer a full suite of so-called concierge perks like Google does.
  • Help Achieve Long-Term Goals: These perks can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including mentorship programs, laptops, the latest software, discounted education opportunities, and even subscriptions to industry magazines.
  • Promote Collaboration: Some of the best ideas come from standing around the coffee maker. Businesses that create opportunities for employees to get out from behind their desks and interact with people across their organization tend to be more innovative and have a stronger corporate culture. So hold meetings outside the office, take your team out into the community to do some volunteer work, or host workplace competitions.
  • Show Appreciation: These perks can include schedule flexibility, competitive medical benefits, reduced summer hours, discounted gym memberships, office snacks, and local sports tickets.

That means continuing education and skills training, as well as investing in the communities in which we work and live.
