Hi, interesting topic!
In the London-based startup I was a former intern at (not sure if I can name it?), we had a few perks to encourage employees to keep healthy habits, although I didn't get to benefit from them myself:
As for wellness, I noticed a few interesting things:
All in all, it made the workplace very enjoyable to work at, and bonded employees like no other place I've worked at before. :) So health and wellness are definitely terribly important.
Sounds like a great place to be. What is your current workplace like in comparison?
Well, it was! I’m on campus right now for my final year of study, so I am not working. But I did another internship (in France) before that one, and there were a lot of benefits too. But it was a bigger company so I didn’t find the team bonding to be so great.
That's a really good point.
The tradeoff between being in a big established organisation with history, benefits, security and where you can become a specialist is that you may feel like a number. Makes it a tough call when you can be a generalist and see more parts of the business in a startup.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
