A winning team is the only way to ensure you can have a winning company strategy in place. Without a solid team of employees in place, your chances of winning drastically go down. To help you better understand how to win great employees, we’ve gathered some information from the top companies around and put it together here for you.
So how does your company win great employees? If you recognize your company needs change this year, make it your goal to achieve a culture that your employees can thrive in. If you are wondering what kind of culture employees thrive in, the kind that wins awards and has employees singing your company’s praises, then check out some of the top perks from the top five companies on the 2015 Glassdoor Employee’s Choice list:
Understanding How to Win Great Employees
The most successful strategy for winning over new employees lies in the benefits package a company offers. For example, Google placed as number one according to the 2015 Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Awards and has continually ranked high each year. What put Google ahead of the pack? The amazing perks package they provided to all of their employees.
As reported by employees, some of the most exciting perks of working for the highly rated internet juggernaut include:
- Retiree Health and Medical
- On-Site Health Care
- Flexible Hours
- Work from Home
- Free Lunch or Snacks
- Paid Holidays
- Gym Membership
- Pet-Friendly Workplace
- Childcare, Dependent Care
- Company Social Events
- Professional Development and Training.
Furthermore, these benefits are all in addition to the basic medical insurance and 401K or other retirement plans.
Nestle Purina Pet Care Company and Boston Consulting Group employees reported Sabbaticals as one of their many perks. F5 Networks, developers of network management platforms, offers employees 3 weeks of paid vacation in the first year of employment and “Beer Fridays”. Most of the top five offer Free healthcare, free snacks and a work from home option.
Winning Great Employees and Influencing People
What is the one thing these companies all have in common? They all have an equally intense desire to invest in their employees in ways that benefit their professional lives. As a result, Tuition Assistance and Apprenticeships were highly prized benefits by employees.
Professional Development and Training programs are used to provide opportunities for employees to enhance or learn new skills. F5 company employees believe the company’s training program is an especially relevant and valuable asset.
While you may not be able to bring pets into work or offer completely free medical to your employees, you can give them something that employees themselves say is more valuable than free snacks: an education. Helping your employees with professional development is an achievable goal for your company this year.
