  • Comfortable space to work (nice chairs, office with a window, coffee maker readily available, etc.)
  • The ability to work from home as needed.
  • Flexible hours.


As someone who works in an ABW office with set traditional hours and the infrastructure support but not the managerial support to work from home, i fully agree with those three points.

  • Pizza and or ice cream provided by the boss on occasion as a 'thank you' to employees for their work.

Beer. Pizza and beer.

My old construction job had a full sized, fully stocked beer fridge in the office. :3

Well, if you put it this way, the less time I spend stressing and mentally planning how to strategically pay all of my bills with the least amount of overdraft/late fees, the more time I have to focus on work.

Motivate workers :
Give them the ability to do the work they are responsible for.
Allow them to make their own decisions 'how' to do the task at hand, don't micromanage & tell them what to do as well as how to do it.
Adjust due dates with scope creep.
