Working with an Abel Personnel recruiter is a great way to evaluate and negotiate a compensation package to determine the real value of the offer. The employee benefits to consider can be grouped into three sets of packages:
- Life insurance
- Disability Insurance
- Parental leave
- Profit sharing
- Vacation leave, Sick leave, Personal leave
- Stock option and Equity
- Bereavement leave
- Flexible Hours or Work from home options
- Flexible Spending Accounts

- Tution Assistance
- Employee Development Funds
- Transportation or Parking Allowance
- In house Mentorship
- Feedback resources
- Help with chores(Concierge Services)
- Employee Recognition
- Health and Wellness Programs

The economic value of each offered benefit should be determined as well as how each supports your desired lifestyle (for example, not having to commute to work).
Your Abel recruiter can assist in the analysis, plus identify which benefits might be open for negotiation.
