GeekWire Awards: Vote for Perk of the Year

Awards0GWA_banners_300x250-02In the war for tech talent, every little thing matters, including sweet workplace perks. That’s especially the case for smaller companies that can’t necessarily compete with tech giants on salary.

That’s why we’re back again with the Perk of the Year category, which recognizes a company for providing an awesome perk, one which exemplifies their workplace culture.

As with each of our categories, the five finalists below were nominated by the community and then selected with the input of our panel of judges. The winners will be announced May 8th at the GeekWire Awards, taking place at the EMP Museum in Seattle.
