Movers & Shakers Great Perks = Great Jobs When identifying the right opportunity for your next career move, you need to look at the entire package a company can offer you: It's not just the pennies, but the perks! Here are some popular perks and benefits you should target in your job search (or suggest that your company consider offering): HEALTH INSURANCE Make sure to research the benefits that their health insur- ance plan can offer you. It's not just about having health insurance and the per- centage paid, but if it also works for you and your life. Moreover, many employ- ers/healthcare plans now offer additional benefits, such as gym reimbursements. FREE LUNCHES Many companies now offer free lunches. This isn't just good for your bank account, but it also helps build rapport with your colleagues. Everyone stepping away from their desk is great for fostering a tight-knit culture. WORKING REMOTELY Working remotely is becoming more common for employ- ees. Companies that give employees the flexibility to work outside the office makes them feel trusted and confident to manage their own work. It also fosters company loyalty and saves a lot time/money on the commute! OPEN-OFFICE PLANS AND MOBILE WORKSTATION Sometimes you just need to get a little space and privacy, while other times it's great to sit down with a colleague in a lounge to get some work done. Traditional desktop computers and cubicles are a thing of the past—dock-able laptops and open-office plans give you a more flexible workspace, facilitate communication and break that chain to your desk so you can keep your body moving.
