The workplace is changing. Linkedin just announced in its 2014 Talent Survey that “having a reputation as a great place to work” is now the #1 consideration for employees looking at new jobs. With companies like Google and Facebook redefining what it means to be a great place to work, employee expectations have skyrocketed in the last few years. According to this study of over 18,000 full-time employees, this has become even more important than having a reputation for great products, people, or prestige.

Companies are looking for new ways to differentiate their workplace to attract, engage, and retain the best talent. Many are starting to invest heavily in workplace perks — everything from catered meals and gym memberships to on-site dry cleaning and team outings — to show that they understand and care about the needs of their staff in and out of the workplace.

In this webinar, Lily Cua (B’11), Co-Founder and COO of Aspire, will address some of the trends in perks and benefits industry. Cua will discuss best practices around the most meaningful perks to offer your staff, how to market those offerings internally to maximize employee awareness and usage, and how offering meaningful perks can impact your staff and company brand.

Lily Cua (B'11, S'16) is Co-Founder & COO of Aspire, which is building an enterprise perks management system that helps companies easily provide and manage workplace perks for their employees.

Since launching their platform in June of 2014, Aspire has administered over 2,000 perks to employees. With the Aspire software, companies learn about the needs of their employees in and out of the workplace and customize their perk offerings that align to those needs, optimizing the dollars that companies spend on workplace perks.

Prior to Aspire, Lily was a consultant in PwC’s Advisory Practice, specializing in delivering data and reporting strategy solutions to Federal organizations.
