NEMO Equipment has faced challenges as new hires weren’t able to find a place to live in NH. In response, the company launched a home share program where employees receive a stipend for hosting new employees from out-of-state as they continue their housing search.
Among their other creative bene-fits, NEMO pays for long-time employees to go on special trips on milestone anniversaries. At 10 years of service, employees can take a trip that is at least 10 days of travel with up to $10,000 of reimbursed expenses. At 15 years, those numbers increase to 15 days and $15,000, at 20 years, 20 days and $20,000.
In return, NEMO requires employees use NEMO gear, explore a place they’ve never been before and submit a brief story of their adventure with a few photos for posting on social media.
Through its Go Far program, the company reimburses employees $100 per night for domestic trips and $150 per night for trips abroad once a year for expenses associated with spending between three and five consecutive nights outdoors in NEMO products.
NEMO’s Go Play program provides an annual stipend up to $150 annually to support registration fees or materials to take part in a race, class or training of the employee’s choosing. And the Go Help program provides employees with up to 16 hours of paid time off for conservation and community service initiatives.
