Employment: 5 Unusual Social Benefits You Need to Know

The benefits offered by the job vary a lot. Back when you were entitled to a phone and a company car if you were lucky, today we see companies competing with each other to offer the most innovative perks. We present to you the top 5 extraordinary social benefits.

Capital One employees can play golf from the rooftop of its Virginia headquarters. When it comes to benefits, is this one of the most original we’ve seen, or should we say, the most innovative? But it’s certainly not the only one, as more and more employers struggle to keep their employees happy. With a recent survey by the Society for Human Resource Management showing health and wellness high on the priority list, what benefits do stand out and can really take off?

  1. Travel allowance

Flexible and even unlimited vacation days are becoming more and more popular, but AirBnB is going one step further by offering employees $2,000 a year to stay in AirBnB accommodation anywhere in the world. It could be a week’s family vacation in a European city or two nights in a penthouse in Dubai. Either way, it’s part of the job in the online home rental market for short periods.

  1. On-site bowling

Trust Google to outperform everybody By building a bowling alley at GooglePlex, its headquarters in California. But the big question is: Are shoes available or should you bring them?

  1. Two words: free food!

Talking about “10 years of technology” is not in vain: It’s the 10 kilos you put on when you start working at one of the many tech companies that provide free and unlimited meals and snacks to their employees. You’ll never eat pie sandwiches out of your lunchbox again!

  1. Vehicle maintenance services

There are some basic things in life that aren’t fun, and maintaining your car is one of those things. Thus, the fact that Adobe offers this service to its employees is not insignificant and may be enough to keep them happy.

  1. Pet health insurance

No, this is not a typo, Scripps Health offers its employees the option of health insurance…for their pets.
