【商業智慧】2023年最佳職場的2個共通點 The two common points of the best workplace in 2023
Amidst the economic instability in 2023, tech giants have been conducting massive layoffs and reducing benefits. However, according to the survey conducted by "Inc." for the "Best Workplace of 2023," top-notch companies continue to uphold two crucial benefits.
Firstly, these enterprises prioritize offering generous salaries and allowances. Among the 591 selected companies, 78% provide over 8 weeks of paid parental leave, 59% offer unlimited paid time off, 51% offer financial planning services, and 44% offer employee stock options. For instance, Lumin Digital, a tech startup, pays 10% higher salaries than its competitors and grants employee stock options to attract top talents. The companies believe that attractive compensation and benefits are essential for attracting talents.
Another common feature is that these companies emphasize work-life balance. This becomes especially crucial for Generation Z and remote workers, as the flexibility in work and personal life gains more importance. As a result, many companies have started offering their employees more freedom and flexible working hours to help them strike a balance between work and life. Mental health is also given significant attention. For example, wealth management company GFM provides a mental health day every quarter. Statistics reveal that among the selected best workplaces, 77% of companies offer the services of mental health counselors.
Overall, these best workplaces continue to prioritize employee welfare and focus on salary benefits and work-life balance even under economic pressure. These factors contribute to making them "happy companies."
