Employee benefits are commonly acknowledged as a major factor in the decision to apply or take a job with a business. Over 57% of applicants say that benefits are critical in whether they accept a job or not. With this in mind, employers will generally use extra perks to find and keep the best workers. We usually associate these perks with paid leave, disability insurance and retirement plans. However, some Tech firms have gone the extra mile and offered some somewhat unconventional, but awesome perks to the job.
