As the saying goes, the happier your employees are the more productive they’ll be. As a result, some companies have clearly decided to embrace this wholeheartedly.
Here are some of their pretty cool employee benefits. Just try not to get too jealous...
1. Get everything taken care of at Google
It’s non-negotiable that Google is committed to their worker's health. With on-site medical doctors, physiotherapists and massage therapists, Google employees are kept in tip-top shape all year round.
Professional chefs also work to satisfy their staffs’ hunger pains by preparing organic food every day. What’s more, workers have access to on-site haircuts, sleeping pods, dry cleaning services and an unlimited supply of fresh flowers.
