04 Feb Epic makes Glassdoor list of companies with best ‘perks,’ joins Twitter, Google, Facebook
Among some of the benefits: “Panda Fridays,” improv classes, ski slope passes and a $30-a-month book allowance.
Electronic health record giant Epic Systems has cracked Glassdoor’s list of top 20 companies that provide their employees unique benefits and perks.
Epic joined other well-known businesses in the field of healthcare IT as well as business titans such as Netflix, Facebook, Google and Disney.
Glassdoor, one of the three largest U.S. job websites, picked companies with unique benefits by analyzing hundreds of thousands of reviews employees posted on its website since August 2014. Among some of the benefits: “Panda Fridays,” improv classes, ski slope passes and a $30-a-month book allowance.
The Glassdoor analysis puts Epic at No. 16 on the list of top 20 companies, with an overall benefit rating of 4.3 out of 5.
It’s credited for, among other perks, enabling its employees – once they’ve worked for the company five years – to take a paid four-week sabbatical to pursue their creative talents.
