Good morning. It’s Tuesday July 18, 2017 and this is your first early morning Jobs briefing!

Could free weights and spin class be a lure for top job prospects? One of the questions Cynopsis asked in our recent reader survey about employee benefits was what type of wellness program was most in demand. Discounts for gym memberships topped the list, with 44% of the almost 1000 readers who responded saying they’d be interested in that perk. Other suggestions from readers included acupuncture, standing desks, yoga and “puppies on premises.” (As for those gym memberships, one Cynopsis reader specified “actual discounts, not $10 off a $300 membership.”)
 “There are many different approaches to employer sponsored employee wellness programs including a wide range of potential services and products,” says Bruce Tulgan, management expert and founder of Rainmaker Thinking, including smoking cessation and stress reduction programs, ergonomic workplace and furniture, “walking” meetings and napping/meditation rooms. Offering the perks most valuable to employees could pay off in hiring and retention (though you might need to keep a pooper scooper handy!).
