 Human beings can withstand a week without water, two weeks without food, many years of homelessness… but not loneliness.  It is the worst of all agonies.  And what’s the worst kind of loneliness?  The kind you can’t escape – when you are uncomfortable with yourself.  The truth is, a partner, or even just a friend, can add lots of beauty to your life, but they can’t fill a void that exists within you.

The Most Popular Employee Perks Of 2014

The Most Popular Employee Perks Of 2014 | Human Resources | Scoop.it

During a trip to California last fall, I stopped in to visit a friend of mine who works at Dropbox.  He zipped over to the reception area to fetch me on a Razor scooter, provided to employees to make getting around the office faster (and cooler), took me past the morning yoga class currently in session, the fresh squeezed juice station and granola wall, and the made-to-order stir fry bar, to the plush music room, equipped with instruments and big soft couches arranged in a lounge/bar atmosphere.  At the time, I was struggling to raise another round for my start-up, and was packing my own lunch for the plane to save money. It was as if I had walked into a physical representation of the opportunity costs of running my own company — and it was painful.

JASON CAVNESS's insight:

When you are offered employment, it is important that you negotiate for any additional perks.  As they say, you never receive what you don't ask for.

more...
Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, February 20, 8:22 PM

In addition to all of the traditional perks like 401K matching funds and free medical and dental benefits, employers are becoming more innovative and employees love it!

Debra Walker's curator insight, March 11, 1:35 PM

I am so glad to see that this author correctly identifies these as perks or additions to compensation plans.  As more employees are seeking other things than the traditional cash compensation, this does provide a competitive advantage as a distinguisher between organizations for individuals considering which organizations to work for.  However, what has to go hand in hand with these amendments to traditional compensation plans is a culture that supports and lives the philosophies that underline it.  As the author notes, not all firms can afford this and it is the kind of work and professional development environment that exists beyond these components that will guide the "happiness" and continued engagement of an employee.

Nancy J. Herr's curator insight, March 21, 5:19 PM

There are lots of things you can do with your staff that are still productive that can help incubate great ideas. Sharing sessions for lessons, technology, a break for some fellowship with a snack, and so on.  Just keep in mind that everything doesn't have to be finished right now; we can return to it and get better ideas. 

John Michel's curator insight, March 21, 7:13 PM

According to HBR.org, a team of researchers led by Sophie Ellwood at the University of Sydney recently found evidence that incubation--taking a break from a problem to focus on something unrelated--can increase creativity.

Mike Masin's curator insight, March 22, 6:43 AM

Your brain needs time to be creative. Think about the problem, focus on something else for a short time, then come back to the problem.
