Perks

Analyze This


In 2010 the world's largest privately held software company, SAS, had an employee turnover rate of 2.6 percent—pretty impressive, given that the info- tech industry average was 22 percent. It doesn't take a data-mining program to figure out why: It's the perks. The Cary (N.C.) campus, home to about 4,700 of the analytics company's 11,000 workers, is benefit-crazed. SAS has everything from a health center, which 75 percent of employees use for their primary care, to a campus hotel—with its own art collection. Even nearby Prestonwood Country Club, owned by SAS Chief Executive Officer Jim Goodnight, gives employees a discount. Yet there's no perk like job security. Since it was founded in 1976, the company has never had a single layoff.

The Perks...

1. Solarium

Communal meeting spaces, such as the palm court in the research-and-development building's glass atrium, abound throughout the campus.

2. Tennis

Outdoor recreation facilities include tennis courts, running tracks and trails, a baseball diamond, and a volleyball court. Intramurals are a popular activity.

3. Fitness Center

A 66,000-square-foot recreation hub occupies four buildings in the middle of campus. It's free for employees and includes a men's and women's locker room.

4. Billiard Hall

Pool tables are housed within the rec center, which also has courts for basketball and racquetball.

5. Pool

Employees are encouraged to use the pool, along with the other fitness facilities, throughout the day.

6. Child Care

A subsidized infant day-care center and a Montessori preschool are available for workers with children.

7. Salon

Employees can get their hair coifed—everything from basic trims to highlights.
