It goes without saying (but let’s say it anyway!) that when it comes to our jobs, we obviously care about things like salary. After all, we have bills to pay and stuff to buy — like a pair of Apple AirPods Pro earbuds and other geeky essentials.

But as research has shown — and your personal experience likely confirms — money is not the #1 factor when it comes to job satisfaction. What people want most is a great workplace. Even if their job is demanding and challenging, they want to look forward to going to work vs. dreading going to work.

And this brings us to February’s poll question: What makes a great workplace?

Please share the factors that you believe are the most important to a great workplace, and list as many as you wish. You can base your response on a workplace you have previously worked in, are currently working in, or wish to one day work in.

Here are a few suggestions:

  • On-site childcare
  • Games (e.g. ping pong, foosball, etc.)
  • Flexible schedules
  • Remote working
  • Amazing co-workers
  • Unlimited vacation policy

You Could Win

Simply by participating in the poll, you’ll be automatically entered to win one of two $25 Amazon gift cards. No, that’s not enough to buy a pair of Apple AirPods Pro. But it is more than enough to buy a Star Wars R2D2 Thermos, so you can keep your soup nice and hot when you’re out fighting against the dark side.

We’ll share the responses and announce the lucky winners in early March. Thank you in advance for participating, and we look forward to learning what you believe makes a great workplace!
