Do you agree with this point of view from Forbes that the best way to retain employees is through a diverse set of corporate volunteer programs? That seems like a good idea, but I would still much rather have telecommuting, competitive pay, extended vacations, gym passes, maybe some stock options, and for the employer to be more proactive paying for training and continued education.
I think with more of an investment in the individual, at least how I feel, I would be more inclined to volunteer for the company. If they take care of me I would have greater motivation to help others under the company umbrella. What do you think?
I think everyone should volunteer some time outside of the company anyways. There are always a lot of opportunities, even if it is as simple as a 5k walk to raise a few bucks.
