Inspired by a CollegeConfidential discussion about Work Holiday Perks I began to wonder about the most common or latest types of employment benefits. Long-term parental leave has been in the news recently, with New York City one of the latest to offer this to some of its employees.
A young person I know scored big with time-off policies when he recently changed jobs to a London-based employer. They offer at least 24 vacation days to everyone, plus they close the week between Christmas and New Year’s. He was thrilled because most employers only offer 10-15 vacation days for their U.S.-based junior employees.
Flexibility is an important workplace perk for Totebaggers. What other benefits do you value? Do you see any trends, positive or negative, in job benefits?
Happy New Year! There will not be a post tomorrow, but maybe you can share how you rang in the new year and any other topics on your mind.
