Who would you rather work for: a company that only cares about what they can get from you, or one that actually cares about whether you’re happy at your job?
When you’re working in a creative field (like graphic design, photography or writing), the work is often its own reward. But that’s exactly why employers need to go above and beyond to ensure the happiness of their most creative people. The freedom and flexibility of self-employment is very tempting, so when a regular income isn’t necessarily your first priority, it’s often the little things that compel you to work for someone else: the ability to work remotely and set your own schedule, a comprehensive wellness and childcare program, or even in-office entertainment.
Maybe you’re a creative professional seeking a company that offers a little something more than just a paycheck and a basic health plan. Or perhaps you’re an employer who wants to make sure your most innovative employees don’t leave you for greener pastures. In any case, it never hurts to be aware of the incentives that many businesses use to attract talented, discerning creatives.
