Final thoughts

While a good salary is a major decision factor, employees look beyond a generous paycheck when choosing a job, and focus more on what else a company has to offer to make them stick around.

With more available opportunities, employees want to find a company that shares the same goals and values — one that is philanthropic but also invests in their employees’ wellbeing, growth and development.

And with this in mind, companies across the globe are starting to focus on more than just salary reviews. However, some lead by example, like those listed here, showing the rest how it should be done!
