Intuit, a business software company that developed TurboTax and QuickBooks, values helping its workers in crisis.
After wildfires in late 2017 destroyed the Santa Rosa home of chief data architect Calum Murray, the Mountain View, California-based company gave him three weeks off, meals, groceries, clothing, furniture and the proceeds of a $20,000 GoFundMe fundraiser to which numerous employees contributed.
Perks include a free college coach to help staffersâ€™ kids get into a top university, a free healthy living coach for weight loss help and $650 annually for living a healthier lifestyle.
Each year Intuit holds a Week of Service where staffers volunteer in their local communities by partnering with nonprofits to do good, and in keeping with environmental awareness, employees give to clean up.
â€œIntuit has changed my life,â€ says a staffer. â€œNo other company would encourage you to build a family, care for your mental/physical health and still support you in furthering your career within the business. Intuit is a blessing.â€
