If you got a paid day off last week, you’re probably still glowing from your three-day weekend.  Here’s something to curb that joy a little bit.

A new survey asked companies which benefits they offer, and most of them aren’t that surprising.  Like 90% have some sort of retirement plan, and 76% have free coffee.  But here are the ten weirdest benefits you’re probably NOT getting . . .

 

1.  14% have on-site fitness classes, and 11% offer on-site massage therapy.

 

2.  9% have health insurance for pets, and 8% allow pets at work.

 

3.  9% pay for the mini-bar if you stay at a hotel on business, and 4% will also cover your pay-per-view bill.

 

4.  8% of companies give employees a paid day off for their BIRTHDAY.

 

5.  5% have an on-site vegetable garden at work.

 

6.  2% offer UNLIMITED paid time off, and 3% offer unlimited sick days.

 

7.  2% will help women pay to have their eggs frozen.

 

8.  2% do a take-your-PARENT-to-work day.  (???)

 

9.  2% offer on-site haircuts.

 

10.  2% have a room at work that’s specifically for taking naps.
