Today’s job search market barely resembles the market from a decade or two ago. It’s less certain that a college degree will result in the job you always dreamed of and the gig economy means that number of well-paid jobs providing impressive benefits is far less than in the past.

But people sitting on the other side of the desk are facing issues of their own. Companies looking to hire the best employees are finding that the hot prospects are looking for a different kind of job experience than their parents.

They don’t want to be tied to the 9-to-5 “daily grind”, they want to be challenged, and they want balance between family and work. The days of being married to the job are becoming extinct and companies looking for the best employees are being forced to adapt.

LinkedIn released a report listing the best companies at attracting and keeping top talent. Flexjobs, a leading job search website, compared that list to its company database and made a list of the 39 companies offering the most flexible work environments.

You’ll find many of the well-known names. Google tops the list but Facebook, Apple, Uber, Tesla, Visa, Coca-Cola, Goldman Sachs, and Starbucks make an appearance as well.

How They Did It

Take Google for example. The company (now under the corporate umbrella of Alphabet) is well known for the endless supply of free food for its workers, and the on-the-job messages. Facebook offers paid maternity – and paternity – leave for four months and Under Armour buys old spaces like its Baltimore Harbor headquarters that includes a basketball court, café, and biowalls for a healthier work environment. The top 10 on Flexjob’s list include:

1. Google

2. Salesforce

3. Facebook

4. Apple

5. Amazon

6. Uber

7. Microsoft

8. Tesla

9. Twitter

10. Airbnb

The others, in order, are: Netflix, Stryker, Visa, Adobe, Workday, Pandora, Under Armour, Tableau, Coca-Cola, Epsilon, Dell, McKinsey & Company, Deloitte, Box, McKesson, Goldman Sachs, JLL, Edelman, Estee Lauder, Starbucks, Splink, Viacom, Live Nation, HBO, Leidos, Fox, Cisco, Yelp and Morgan Stanley.

Does It Really Matter?

Biowalls may appeal to the Millennial looking for a trendy place that makes for a great SnapChat background, but does it really create a better business? Could be. A Harvard Business Review study found that for every 0.1% increase in employee engagement, BestBuy added $100,000 in annual operating income. A New York Times article reported that companies with supportive management see a retention rate that is 1.3 times higher than average.

If you’re a business owner, take care of your employees. It will pay off. If you’re a prospective employee, strive to become “the top talent” in your field. There are some pretty amazing jobs waiting for you.
