The current low unemployment rate combined with the tricky proposition of attracting millennials has inspired to employers to devise exceptionally competitive and creative benefit packages. Some programs include the perks of your employer paying some of your student loan payments. That is GREAT NEWS!
Over the last decade the trend of redesigning benefit packages has given employers better recruiting tools.
These new programs offer inventive benefits; for example:
- Breast-milk shipping for traveling moms
- Up to $5,000 in employer-provided adoption assistance
- Extended paid leave for new parents
- Subsidized childcare
- Pawternity benefits (bereavement leave, new puppy leave, adoption fee reimbursements and pet insurance)
- Student loan repayment benefits
Those benefits are great news for everyone!
