Perks and Programs

We asked Justworks to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Leadership Training: There is no greater responsibility than leading our colleagues. Strong leaders are able to create impact far greater than what they could accomplish as individuals. Our program consists of managers and those that have the potential to manage teams. The leadership cohort learns all the aspects of empowering themselves and their teams to excel. This is essential to personal and professional growth, as we value our employees. Their success allows for company success.
  • Company-Wide Awards: We like to give recognition for performance that goes above and beyond their own job duties and that exemplifies our values. Two Ducks in a Bucket -- The employee(s) saw a problem or opportunity and, exercising exceptional judgment, went out of their way to address the problem or capture the opportunity. Sans Frontières -- The employee(s) saw the bigger picture and created value through cross-functional collaboration. Miscellaneous Sales Awards - For meeting and exceeding sales goals
  • Company Retreats: The main objective for bi-annual retreats is to foster better relationships between teams and one another. Overall, it's about team building, building a stronger company, and having fun while doing so. We typically hold these retreats on beautiful camp grounds that have many fun activities available.
  • Dog Friendly Environment: We value an open casual and fun environment. Having a dog friendly office is one way we can do that while providing flexibility.
  • Employee Referral Program: We have certain values that each employee exemplifies. We trust that our employees know others who can also contribute to the company's success. We pay out for each employee referral hire.
  • Unlimited Snacks & Drinks: We offer an abundance of snack and drinks (beer and wine included!). We want to ensure that we make people feel at home and this is a great way of doing that!
  • Interview Training: Interviewing is a developed skill that is important as employees grow in their own career We also want to to ensure that each person that is hired embodies the same company values that make us successful.
  • Citi Bike Membership: Happy healthy people promote a happy, healthy workplace. We cover this fully. And this perk is something that we're proud of.
  • Monthly Team Offsites: Every team has the ability and budget to get away and regroup. This helps unify teams, allows for them to focus on their goals, and it's fun!
  • Diversity & Inclusion: Our goal is to mirror New York Cities diversity statistics. This city is a large ethnically diverse metropolis and we want to represent our company as such.
