Klüber is a company that rewards a job well done. A bonus structure is in place for all employees. Those who work hourly schedules receive an annual bonus equivalent to one month’s pay. At milestone anniversaries, employees receive points toward a gift they pick, ranging from $25 to $500 via AwardCo. From 5 to 30 years, employees also receive bonus checks of up to $3,000.

Throughout the year, Klüber creates a fun atmosphere by bringing in food trucks and creating employee events like BBQs, potlucks and TEDTalk Tuesday, as well as hosting a family summer outing and an employee holiday party.

Klüber had to get creative though during pandemic times. In lieu of onsite events, the company has come up with a variety of virtual events ranging from guest speakers to holiday raffles, in addition to sending out gift cards and gifts to employees and their families to show appreciation.

But it’s not all fun and games. Employees are also encouraged to be healthier. Klüber pays 85% of health insurance, hosts an annual health-screening day and incentivizes employees  by reimbursing them $540 annually for gym memberships, sneakers, bicycles,  fitness watches and a variety of exercise equipment. Even participating spouses receive $200 annually.

Employees can also access onsite chiropractic services.
