New hires at Westlake Village, Calif.-based Cydcor don’t have to wait long for their benefits to kick in: Team members are eligible the month following their hire dates. Beginning in their first year, each employee receives 15 days of sick and vacation time.
Once on board, employees can tap the organization’s, wellness and smoking-cessation programs, supplemental life insurance and dependent care spending account, among other perks.
The organization, a provider of outsourced sales teams, allows each employee to use eight paid workdays a year to volunteer off site, and arranges volunteer opportunities for group participation. Last year, the company kicked off its CydcorCares program with a reading fair that took place at local Boys and Girls Clubs and drew more than 500 employee volunteers from offices around the country.
And they’re often asked to participate in employee surveys and to place their comments into a suggestion box for execs to consider.
