Employers offer their workers all kinds of benefits in order to retain and attract top talent, including free house cleaning. This outrageous job perk from Evernote means their employees have their houses cleaned twice a month at no extra cost. The free house cleaning is available for all 250 of Evernote's full-time people.
Evernote also encourages flexibility among its staff members by not monitoring their time off and providing a monetary incentive for workaholics to take vacation.
Benefits like this -- that move away from in-office and towards the home -- are becoming increasingly prevalent among startups and in Silicon Valley. This reflects a desire of companies and organizations to respect the work-life balance of their people and to help them better manage their responsibilities outside of the workplace.
