Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? People with integrity expect to be believed, when they're not they let time prove them right. What do you like to do in your free time? Time with my family, Staying fit, Being outdoors. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? Family orientated environment, I set my own KPIs. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? We celebrate the diverse nationalities & culture that is working in our company. In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Mixture of young and old, experience and inexperience - all bond together and help each other out.

All work and no play can create a tense and unwelcoming environment. Studies have shown that employers that offer additional perks have employees that are happier and more loyal to their place of employment. If you are looking for an employer that acknowledges how important it is to give its employees a place to de-stress and bond with their co-workers, check out these companies!
