Venture-backed company Boxed online grocer now offers funding for employees' major life events -- allowing employees to apply for help with funding weddings, children's college tuition and any other major life event.

Founder Chieh Huang started the brand in 2013 to sell bulk goods to people all around the country, with over 200 employees now backing the company's smart business strategy and general treatment. Huang decided that each employee deserved equal benefits such as healthcare, maternity and paternity leave, dental and vacation days, as well as generous help with each employees specific needs.

Boxed online grocer thinks of each employee as an individual, offering perks and benefits for any major life event that could cripple someone financially, seeking to attract new talent while still keeping loyal employees.
