Long list of conveniences keeps employees on board

The HR team at Insomniac Games in Burbank, Calif., constantly surveys employees to learn which benefits they want. The exercise, says HR Director Carrie Dieterle, boosts productivity.

One employee favorite: the firm’s $125,000-a-year snack program. Insomniac’s kitchen features 40 drink choices, as well as fruits and healthy snacks. In addition, employees nosh on a catered lunch every Friday.

Also on Fridays, employee teams take time to compete by playing online games.

During crunch times, workers can get on-site massages. And the organization’s 12,000-square-foot health club is available all week, along with basketball courts, a life-size chessboard and jogging trails.

“Summer is a busy season because games release in the fall,” Dieterle says. “We find ways to get employees away from their desks by having cappuccino bars, smoothie days, ice cream socials or ping-pong tournaments.”

It helps retention. More than half of Insomniac’s employees have worked there for at least five years.
