What Kind of Benefits Does Your Company Offer?

Updated: Aug 26, 2019

Companies are competing to make beside the salary, benefits more and more attractive as a measure to convince more job seekers to join their team. Businesses need to plan employee benefits and perks so that as professionals grow, while the company continues to attract and retain the talent it needs for further development on the market.


Here is what I’ve learned over the last few years in interacting with employers and employees: Not all benefits are perceived as advantages by the other part. Still, there are some similarities in the two lists below.



The company sees benefits in the following points:


  • Health insurance

  • Meal/Catering tickets

  • Paid overtime

  • Flexible working hours

  • Mobile calls reimbursement

  • Relocation package

  • Subscriptions (e.g. library, fitness etc.)

  • Internal training

  • Profit sharing, if the industry is suitable for it

  • Free snacks and drinks

  • Casual dress code

  • Fun team events (e.g. thematic Fridays, picnics, team-building)

  • A great view from the window

  • Cool office architecture

  • Modern desks and chairs

  • Open-space seating

  • Table football

  • Ping-pong tables

  • Office location close to public transport


The employee sees as benefits in the following points:


  • Health insurance

  • Dental insurance

  • Disability insurance

  • Life insurance

  • Flexible working hours

  • Home-office possibility

  • Appropriate payment for their work

  • Profit sharing, if the industry is suitable for it

  • Paid time off from work (e.g. paid vacation days, paid personal day or grief/funeral leave)

  • Internal and external training and certifications

  • Sponsored participation in conferences, workshops and other events of the industry

  • Respect for their time and talents

  • Transparency into the organization’s strategic plans

  • Ethical and modern leadership

  • Tools and equipment to carry out their work

  • Free parking or parking reimbursement

  • Commuting cost reimbursement

  • Relocation package

  • Subscriptions (e.g. library, fitness etc.)

  • A real work-life balance


Benefits and perks make potential employers more competitive and give job seekers a broader horizon while deciding to accept a particular job offer.
