Some companies may offer potential employees a benefits package in addition to the salary as a "job perk" that might convince them to accept a job offer. Evaluate what benefits are valuable to you when looking for a package.

Benefits that may be offered include:

  • Additional vacation time
  • Child care assistance

  • Discounted products
  • Life insurance (employee & spouse)
  • Retirement counseling
  • Private health care
  • Gym memberships
  • Travel vouchers
  • Home PCs

To convince an employee to go abroad, an employer may offer additional benefits to help ease the transition. The most common is an increase in salary.

Other benefits may include:

  • Relocation benefits that cover the cost of the actual move plus the help of a relocation agent to ease the transition
  • Accommodation benefits such as subsidized housing and a rental agent to help find accommodations
  • Language training at home and abroad to help the employee integrate
  • Expatriate family benefits that assist with tuition payments for children and obtaining visas and compensate for the potential loss of the spouse's income
