Here are all of Google's employee perks, and how much they cost the company...
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Management
Thank you Jillian D'Onfro for the breakdown. Google definitely gets this right:
With free gourmet meals, in-house massages, and dry cleaning on campus, Google is known for its extensive list of perks.
Founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin even brought up the myriad perks in their shareholders' letter when the company went public in 2004, promising their commitment to providing benefits that could "save employees considerable time and improve their health and productivity."
Google wants its people programs to achieve efficiency, promote community, and spur innovation.
Surprisingly, Google says it doesn't drop as much money as one might expect on those perks.
"Most people assume Google spends a fortune doing special things for our employees," Google HR boss Laszlo Bock writes in his new book "Work Rules!"
"Aside from our cafes and shuttles, we don't," he says.
ATMs for tipping?
That's what I'm thinking. Or for trips into town, I guess.
I've heard Google has something called "MiXiT":
"What is MiXiT?
MiXiT is an interactive salad experience where you work with a food team member to build your perfect salad."
I wonder if there's an app for that.
