Most Quirky Employee Perks Offered by UK Employers
Posted on Friday, January 5, 2018 by The Office Zen Master — No comments
If you’re seeking PA jobs, executive assistant jobs, or other office support jobs, make sure you consider more than just the salary on offer. The best employers will offer various perks, demonstrating that they care not just about your ability to do the job, but your future too. Great perks show that the company wants to attract and retain the best talent in the industry.
With as a third of people reporting that perks and benefits are the most important factor to consider before accepting a job at a company, it’s no surprise that businesses of all sizes are becoming increasingly inventive when it comes to what they can offer their employees. Here’s some unique, creative, and surprising perks offered by UK employers…
