Whether you are a construction business or a website design company, a competitive benefits package is important when trying to recruit the best employees. A standard  benefits package will most likely include health insurance, a retirement savings plan and paid time off. Here are some unique employee benefits that may help your company stand apart from the rest:
1. Paid volunteer work – Give employees a couple of paid days each year to participate in the volunteer work of their choice. They will get out of the office for a day and help out the local community.
2. Floating holidays – A floating holiday to use on your birthday or some other occasion that is personally significant is a nice perk.
3. Flexible work arrangements – Many employees look for this benefit when trying to find a new job. It reinforces to employees that a good work-life balance is important to your company.
4. Laundry service – Hire a service that will pick up laundry and give your staff the opportunity to fill a laundry bag once a week. Then employees can spend more free time on activities they enjoy and less time doing laundry.
5. An encouragement stipend – Many companies offer education stipends, but few companies offer stipends that encourage employees to pursue their passions. Employees can use the money for anything from French lessons to sky diving. This benefit also reinforces the importance of a good work-life balance.
