10 Most Unusual Company Perks
1The company that offers free beer to employees every Friday
Jennifer Fuicelli, the company's chief executive, said that while she knows alcohol in the workplace is a contentious issue for some, she wanted to provide an "unorthodox corporate culture" of rewarding employees for their hard work — by allowing them to crack open a cold one, on the company's tab, during work hours. "We have a very low turnover, and a very high retention rate," she said.
2The company that held an orgy to ‘reward' their salesmen
3The company that offers free Botox injections and tanning beds to their employees
4The company that has declared a naked Friday to boost morale
Despite some initial reluctance, nearly all of the staff took off all their clothes – except for one man, who wore a posing pouch, and one of two female workers, who kept on black underwear.
5The company that offers their employees a free concierge
6The company that has its own private shopping mall exclusively for their employees
MS employees had better watch out if the company wants to start paying them in “Microsoft Dollars.” Could this turn into a modern day Pullman town?
7The company that pays for their employees' divorces
8The company that allows you to take your pet to work and has Formal Fridays
Also, putting an interesting twist on the corporate world's Casual Friday, Airbnbers have the opposite – dressing up for Formal Fridays. Plus, we can't forget the mustaches. Yep, apparently they get mustaches. If that wasn't enough to make you feel like you want to drop everything and apply for a job at Airbnb, the staff also gets theme days, one of which was in the vein of Mad Men. Yes, we're jealous.
9The company that offers a mini parade for the employee of the month
Top executives then pick a winner from candidates selected from the pool. Their selection is announced with a mini-parade featuring noisemakers and the song "I Need a Hero" played on a rolling sound system. The chosen hero gets a covered parking spot for a month, a $150 Zappos gift card, and a cape.
10The company that offers a minibar where the staff pay on an honor system
Staff pay for the food based on an honor system, and can deduct however much they estimate they use from their payroll, or use a Square mobile payments device to pay on-the-spot.
Employees enjoy Free Food Fridays, a fully catered lunch, once a month. Friday Happy Hour takes place every week in the offices in New York City and Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
