LinkedIn recently released their “Top Companies 2018: Where the U.S. wants to work now” list with a focus on interest in the company, engagement with the company’s employees, job demand, and employee retention. Today, we’re seeing what these top companies offer their employees in comparison to what you said you desire in the workplace.
According to our 2018 job market research, employees agreed on 10 aspects of the compensation package to make up for a lower salary than expected. Outside of healthcare, employees desire time off, flexible schedules, advancement and growth options, better culture, improved quality of life, perks, commission/bonuses, opportunity to learn new skills, and job security.
For the foodie
Most companies on the list offer benefits focused on health and wellness, flexible schedules, and professional development. The specific perks include healthier and free food options, on premise gyms, extended bereavement, maternity, paternity, and adoption leave, flexible work locations, schedules, and commuter options, tuition assistance, and mentoring and professional development. If you are still on your New Year’s goals to meal prep, but have been slacking, companies such as WeWork, DropBox, Stryker, Facebook, and Alphabet all offer both free and healthier food options. But before your meal, be sure to sneak in a work out at Nike, Stryker, or Alphabet!
For the homebody
Whether you are a parent to be, looking into the adoption process, or have recently lost a loved one, Johnson & Johnson, ADP, Kering, BCG, Verizon, Deloitte, Spotify, Apple, and Facebook are more than happy to give you the amount of time you need for bereavement, maternity, and paternity leave. When you return, if the 9 to 5 schedule isn’t working for you, try checking out Abbott, Kering, Dell, and Tesla’s flexible schedule options. Whether you are looking to work from home, set your own hours, or utilize the company carpool (plus you get to keep the Tesla on the weekend) these companies have you covered.
For the recent grad
For the recent graduate, you may want to heavily consider a company that will help with your student loans. Companies such as Live Nation, PwC, and Verizon offer, up to a set amount, to help and/or match previous tuition loans. If you are interested in continuing your education, but without the classroom or the textbooks, Twitter, Accenture, and BCG pride themselves on offering mentor and professional development courses to help their employees in various departments.
