Benefits that rock: Inside the ‘jam room’ at Zappos’ headquarters
The online retailer is offering free music lessons to employees via a new app.
Employers are experimenting with new and interesting wellness benefits. Employee Benefit Adviser has covered a variety of unique programs — everything from zombie themed walking challenges to a benefits superhero. In August we published a piece about a musical wellness program at the online retailer Zappos. The program is made possible through a partnership with Fender Play, an app that provides a step-by-step guide for users to learn music. Through the benefit, Zappos employees have access to musical instruments like electric guitars, basses and ukuleles in the office. Listen to our most recent podcast for an inside look into the program and the company's jam room.
