What Are Work Perks?
A work perk is an informal benefit provided by the employer to employees. A formal workplace benefit would be something like health insurance provided as part of the employee package. Work Perks are less formal than this, are more sporadic and are mainly aimed at the millennial workforce. The main purpose of work perks is to make staff more productive and motivated. Work Perks are determined by the company budget, although don’t have to cost a fortune. There numerous inexpensive ways to offer work perks to employees.
