Starting a new business? Get 40% off our accountancy services for 3 months! 😀


Employment benefits (aka ‘work perks’) have come a long way in the past couple of decades. Not so long ago, a free gym membership would have been enough to keep staff sweet.

These days, employees are digging a little deeper when it comes to their benefits, and a lot of it is largely related to a newfound dedication to the work-life balance.

Nap pods, self-care absence, desks with treadmills, paw-ternity leave, and doggy day care. It all used to seem outlandish but as time ticks on by, these new-fangled concepts are becoming more normal.

It seems that the concept of on-site childcare is also making more frequent an appearance. This isn’t an entirely new idea. Leading investment banking firm, Goldman Sachs opened the first UK corporate crèche at their offices in London back in 2003.

However, as the childcare crisis continues to build momentum in line with the ongoing talent shortage, the topic, always relevant, is now coming into sharper focus.
