Top companies offer perks like free gym memberships, meals and unlimited paid time off

Latest Supplier Sentiment Survey by Taulia Finds 62% of Suppliers Now Looking for Early Payment – up From 54% In 2016

The perks and benefits at some of the nation’s top companies go beyond your everyday benefits like a 401(k) and dental insurance.

Unlimited paid time off, 100% paid health care, child care, catered meals, free gym memberships and massages are commonplace at the businesses topping Comparably’s Best Companies for Perks & Benefits in 2019 list.

The list – shared exclusively with USA TODAY Thursday – includes tech giants Microsoft, Google, Facebook and Amazon, all of which also made the job-hunting website’s list for best compensation.

But Comparably CEO Jason Nazar said salary is not the only factor job seekers are looking at.

“We’re in one of the most competitive job markets in history … especially for really in-demand workers,” Nazar said. “One of the biggest competitive advantages that companies have to attract the best talent are these different perks and benefits because it’s what makes them stand out.”

Comparably compiled data from 10 million ratings across 50,000 U.S. companies. Questions employees were asked included: “Are you satisfied with your benefits?” and “How would you rate the perks your office provides?”

To qualify, large companies with more than 500 employees had to have a minimum of 75 employees participate in the anonymous survey. Smaller companies with under 500 employees had a minimum of 25 employee participants.

The survey found 89% of employees from large companies and 94% from small/mid-size companies said they were satisfied with their benefits, compared to 63% of all employees surveyed.

The perks vary by company and several of the larger top companies were offering many including free transportation, Nazar said.

Comparably’s Best Perks & Benefits are derived from ratings provided by employees that have anonymously rated their companies on Comparably.com between September 12, 2018 and September 12, 2019.

Additional weight was given to companies with more participation from their employee base. Winners were determined based on a series of questions employees were asked related to their work-life balance at work in a variety of question formats.
