New York technology provider SiteCompli attracts recent college graduates for entry-level jobs with perks like a “Dress Like a Rock Star” clothing budget for each employee, a Chelsea loft-style office complete with a kitchen full of snacks, a conference table made of 32,000 Legos and high-intensity ping-pong tournaments.
Managers at the firm—which supplies property owners with neighborhood data about code violations, complaints, inspections, fines, hearings, jobs and permits—say building a fun and creative atmosphere helps keep its young employees motivated and engaged.
SiteCompli also offers a competitive benefits package. Among its perks: unlimited vacation time, cash bonuses to employees who take a full week off, 100% paid health insurance for every employee, subsidized child care and pet-sitting for employees who have to work late or attend business-related, after-hours events.
The focus on fun is “expensive in the short run,” admits co-founder Jason Griffith. However, it “delivers tremendous long-term ROI for our company by keeping our … people front and center.”
