Good morning. It’s Wednesday February 7, 2018 and this is your first early morning Jobs briefing!

Cynopsis asked our readers which office perk they appreciated most, and one answer dominated:
Flexible hours: 58%
Casual dress code: 20%
Free food: 12%
Gym/yoga membership 10%
While flexible work hours benefit employees, here are 3 ways employers benefit, too:
  1. Less absenteeism and tardiness. Employees needn’t call in sick or arrive late if they have to wait for a repairman or attend a teacher conference; they can tailor their hours to get the job done.
  2. A valuable recruiting tool. The best job candidates don’t have to settle for a company that doesn’t offer them a schedule that suits their work balance needs.
  3. More productive employees. Flexible hours boosts morale, making for happier employees who focus on the job at hand, not watching the clock.
State of the TV/Media Marketplace Survey
We want to pick your brain…it won’t take more than 2 minutes of your time.
What’s in it for you? Survey respondents will be entered and randomly selected to win one of 25 Starbucks gift cards valued at
$25 each.
(Your comments will be held in strict confidence and the results will be reviewed in aggregate only )
