Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? It’s not the length of life, but the depth of life. – Ralph Waldo Emerson What do you like to do in your free time? I enjoy spending time with my kids- we go to different museums, parks, etc. I also like to read whenever I can find time. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? We have a great camaraderie here, everyone has one common goal in mind and that is to stay true to our company values. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? We do a lot- monthly luncheons, team building activities, social initiatives, bring your dog to work, etc. In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? We work hard and play hard here.

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!
