Tickets to Lollapalooza? Perks from the best wealth management fintechs
Whether it’s scuba diving trips or company happy hours, employees at this year’s annual Best Fintechs to Work For have much to enjoy.
But it takes more than short-lived perks to keep workers happy, engaged and learning. Indeed, they have higher expectations than ever before, according to Laura Hamill, who conducts research on employee engagement and inclusion at benefits software company Limeade.
Millennials, especially, “are more likely to leave if they don’t feel [their firm is] supporting them,”she says.
Companies on this year’s list successfully communicate long-term strategies, allowing workers to feel secure and engaged. These companies are also open to input from employees, according to a benchmark report by Best Companies Group, an employer assessment firm that collated and analyzed this year’s winners.
Some wealth management and fintech firms stand out because of their investments in diversity and inclusion efforts. The digital bank and robo advisor Ally Financial, for example, is conducting manager-specific training in locations where LGBTQ employees had indicated they did not feel connected, and the company is building stronger relationships with organizations and colleges to identify diverse employee candidates.
Still, fun perks are an important component of this year’s list. Wealth management software company Oranj shortens its work week when the music festival Lollapalooza comes to Chicago, and offers workers VIP tickets for the weekend. CRM provider Redtail invites each employee and their guest on an all-expenses-paid annual team building trip to an exclusive resort.
And time off? Employees at some of these firms get a lot of it. 280 CapMarkets and Facet Wealth give employees unlimited vacation, personal and sick days.
