Benefits and Perks
Unfortunately, a minority of employees — about 31 percent — are presented with both paid vacation and sick leave. Workers who save for retirement get lots of help because the company offers a number of savings programs including a 403(b) plan and a 401(k) plan. At Alzheimer's Association, a fair number of survey participants have health insurance, and a solid majority of survey participants have dental coverage. Privileges also include a casual working environment, flexible hours, and a subsidized cell phone.
