Why everyone wants to work at Google

The workforce of today has evolved, thanks to a new generation of workers that value life and balance.  Most highly qualified top performing employees want to work, but they increasingly want flexibility, strong benefits, great perks, and a positive, engaging office culture with like-minded individuals.

Google has worked hard to make this type of work environment a reality.  Google’s new philanthropic initiative “for the changing nature of work” seeks to reach and retain employees by offering these critical elements of work culture.

Kudos to Google for are paying attention to what makes an employee a happy and long-term employee!  Employers everywhere should take note to what works in today’s workforce.
