You may have seen the recent article covering the best non-salary benefits to offer millennials in the workplace. The article will have given you an understanding of what’s available, and now it’s time to take a look at where such benefits are available. Here is a list of top employee benefits and perks of outstanding companies.
The Walt Disney Company
Many people who have worked on-site at Walt Disney World right after graduating from college agree that Disney’s employee perks are, well, magical. Employees are granted free park admission, a limited number of guest passes for when parents and friends come to visit, an employee discount on Disney loot as well as table service food and access to shows and attractions before their launch to the general public. These are available even to part-time, College Program interns. In addition to these perks, full-time employees are granted health, dental, disability income and life insurance, paid holidays and vacation days, onsite child care, assistance with adopting a child, a 401(K) plan, an employer match contribution program and continuing education opportunities.
Because the company is No. 1 on the 2015 Fortune 500 list, it seems only fair to include Walmart as part of this roundup. Health benefits are key here—employees have access to a Health Savings Account (HAS) with 100% coverage for in-network preventative care, $4 copay on generic drugs at Walmart or Sam’s Club pharmacies and free access to nurse care managers and healthcare advisors. In addition, Sam’s Club employees receive a free membership—and all employees receive access to the online Associate Discount Center, with more than 375 discounts available on a multitude of goods and services.
Google (or Alphabet)
Well known for its employee perks, Google offers “programs and onsite amenities aimed at supporting you and your loved ones through life’s various stages.” Employees receive the usual insurance and retirement benefits, as well as continuing education opportunities and the chance to give back to the community through matching donations to charities of choice. But what sets Google apart are the on-campus amendities—offering “onsite wellness and healthcare services, including physicians, chiropractic, physical therapy and massage services.” The company also offers several food options, fitness centers and classes.
There have been previous reviews of Facebook’s employee benefits and perk, but some are so unique that they are worth revisiting. One standout benefit of working for Facebook is that employees are granted a $250 product allowance to use Facebook ads either for themselves or for family and friends. Other perks include Facebook Clubs and transportation to work for locally based employees.
It may seem like a bit of overkill regarding the tech companies, but it’s no secret that millennials are flocking to tech companies for employment. On top of that, type “Apple Employee Benefits” into Google and you’ll find that Apple’s company culture and employee benefits are well renowned, at least over the Internet. Apple is elusive about displaying such great benefits on the company homepage, though. Reviews on Glassdoor indicate the usual health insurance and 401K as well as an employee discount on all products, the opportunity to telecommute, a gym membership, professional development opportunities and access to tech support for personal computers and devices.
Because Goldman Sachs is such a desirable place for financially savvy investment bankers to work, we’ve supplied you with tips on how to get an internship with the company. The perks are desirable, too, and employees are eligible from day one of employment. They include health and life insurance, vacation time, retirement plans and child care. There is also an on-site wellness center at the company’s New York, New Jersey and Utah offices. “Expectant parent resources” are also included, and employees have a chance to utilize the company’s very product with their own investment banking plans.
These companies will all be recognized by millennials, but that’s not to say that other top companies don’t offer extensive benefits and perks. On Fortune’s newest list—the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials—you’ll find a few companies named here, along with many others that may not come to mind right away.
