In taking a further look into the Top 100 Workplaces in the Philadelphia area, the soft perks made a big difference in employees' perception of the overall working environment. It's not just the incentive and anniversary vacations, ziplining and go-karting outings,
on-site daycare services, and free ice cream -- a lot of what employees recognize are the lifestyle benefits - paid paternity leave, the option to telecommute, tuition reimbursement, and on-site daycare were cited as top perks.
I'm a certified career coach based in Philadelphia. I started my own practice to help people land their dream jobs and achieve their individual definitions of success.
I also keep this blog with my musings on changes in the employment landscape, advice for job seekers, links to other career-related articles, and anything else that catches my interest.
