The children of Crowe Chizek and Co. accountants stay with baby sitters every Saturday morning during tax season, and their parents don’t pay.
Nineteen of the firm’s 23 nationwide locations spring for the six-hour sessions, during which kids paint, enjoy visits from zoo animals, have pajama parties and get makeovers. Parents spend breaks and eat lunch with their kids.
“We try to do everything we can to help them manage their work/life responsibilities,” Jane Hoff, HR leader, says.
Those who work as consultants spend much of their time traveling, so the company gives them small bonuses for each overnight trip. About 40% of the firm’s 2,500 employees earned cash rewards for every night spent in a hotel last year—ranging from $25 to $75 per night.
Plus, the employer pays memberships to airport clubs and out-of-town gym visits. If an employee has to be away for more than a week, the company springs for a weekend flight home—or sends a significant other or family member out for a visit.
