While most Top Mortgage Workplaces offer standard health and life benefits, such as medical and dental coverage and life insurance, very few companies offer retirement plans – a consistent sticking point among employees – and less than half offer disability benefits.
Outside the standard benefits, a few companies also offer wellness perks such as gym membership reimbursement, group fitness discounts, and weekly yoga and massages. A few organizations take mental health into account, too, by covering counselling in their wellness programs. Mindfulness coaching, open-door policies and an emphasis on transparency are other ways companies seek to care for their employees.
