Work, rest and play, the top 50 perks employees want in their office

Office puppyFrom libraries to punching bags and heated seats to personal baristas, the top 50 perks to make a company “cool” have been revealed.

Attracting new employees and retaining current staff is an ongoing issue for many employers but will the items chosen in online gaming site Mobileslots.com’s recent survey offer a solution to companies?

Some ideas, such as crèches and gyms are practical and already offered by many organisations. Other items are, how should we put it, more creative. For example, we’re unsure how many organisations could realistically offer a carousel or a puppy/kitten room!

Unsurprisingly food and drink seemed a common theme with bakeries, ice cream vans, chocolate fountains, popcorn machines and a daily buffet all making the top 50.

There was also a sense of adding both rest and play into the working day with suggestions including massaging office chairs, Segway scooters, nap rooms, floor pianos, slides and a yoga studio.

A spokesperson from mobileslots.com said: “For most of us, offices are a bit dull and boring so fantasising about an amazing workspace is great escape.”

“We found that lots of the items on the list, whilst they seemed wacky, actually had sound reasoning behind them. At work, we are always looking for ways wanting to de-stress, be more energised and encourage creativity. Perhaps having puppy rooms, a library and massaging chairs would help along with this.”
