Favorite employee perk/benefit?🤔

Hi all! I'm curious on what your favorite 'perk' or employee benefit is at your current company (or even past companies you've worked at)! I definitely miss catered lunch and free snacks, but in a more remote world, I'm wondering what other perks people are enjoying!

Wellness reimbursement and education reimbursement. I've been buying a lot of technical books and taking courses, so fun. :)Also unlimited PTO. I know it gets a bad rap, but done right, it's beautiful. I have so much flexibility.

I'm surprised by the amount of people in my network that I've heard enjoy unlimited PTO -- I have a set amount and I would love to have unlimited in theory, but heard of a lot people not utilizing many days, so I'm glad to hear some people are taking the time they need!

It's definitely a mindset change, and there are companies where they claim to have unlimited PTO but then they can make you feel guilty about it too. But I use it pretty liberally and figure if no one is complaining and I'm getting my work done, then it's ok. :D

I was really enjoying corporate travel insurance covering personal trips as well, including immediate family. As I am an avid traveler, that helped me a lot, since it included also not only medical travel coverage but also personal money loss (read: stolen items or covering car rental insurance excess, so I never had to pay extra for full car insurance coverage). However after 2 years of COVID company discontinued this for personal trips, deeming it's not an industry practice.

That's so cool! It's a bummer that it's been discontinued :/

I think my favorite has been reimbursement for home office upgrades. I work remotely and it sparks much more joy when I have monitors, a nice keyboard, a good chair, etc.

Love that! Did you receive a set amount dedicated to an office setup when you started or does the company offer a monthly stipend?

It was a set amount ($500) when I started although I did wish there was a bit more every 6 months for random cables/adapters/etc

Ahh, I see - I kind of like that there's an amount up front! We get a $100 monthly 'wellness' stipend that can go towards wellness products/apps/software or towards home office setup
