Best Boss Ever Pays For His Employees' Weddings and Their Kids' College Tuitions
When it comes to employee perks at start-ups, free happy hours, unlimited snacks, and in-office games seem to be the norm. While those benefits are pretty great, the perks at Boxed, an online bulk-shopping business, are in a league of their own.
Boxed CEO Chieh Huang just announced that the company will start paying up to ,000 to help full-time employees pay for their weddings. The one-of-a-kind perk was established after company execs found out that Marcel Graham, an employee at a Boxed fulfillment center in New Jersey, was struggling to pay for his mother's medical expensesandhis upcoming wedding. (According to Inc., his mother was "gravely ill" and Marcel "wanted to get married to his fiancée as soon as possible so his mother could participate in the ceremony.")
Unable to make ends meet, a frustrated Marcel broke down in tears on the job one day. Chieh learned of the situation, and phoned Marcel to ask how he could help, which led to the new wedding benefit. "We had to step in and do the right thing," the CEO said in an interview with the Huffington Post.
Marcel was, of course, overwhelmed by the new company perk. "I was in tears, and so was my fiancee. It just makes me feel that they appreciate my work here," he said in a company press release.
But the wedding perk is only one of the many ways Boxed is putting its money where its mouth is when it comes to supporting employees. The hourly workers, for instance, share the same benefits as salaried employees. They get unlimited vacation time, sick time,andparental leave. The company also pays the college tuition of its employees' kids. (There are virtually no limitations on this perk, either—Boxed pays for private or public higher education.)
With such amazing benefits, it's no surprise that employees are fiercely loyal to the company. "Only two people have ever left the company," Chieh told the Huffington Post.
If working at Boxed sounds like the best job ever, you're in luck.
