It’s April, so if you’re about to graduate, you’re probably in the midst of something even worse than finals – job applications. Unless you got a hedge fund manager’s son to propose (which, seriously, congratulations), you’ve gotta get a job, as if getting through graduation wasn’t already hard enough. If you’re lucky enough to be looking at multiple offers, you’re in the great position to start comparing perks. Job A offers 10 vacation days, but if Job B offers 14 with a signing bonus, your decision is pretty easy. But if you’re REALLY lucky, the best job perk of all will be sitting at a desk with a champagne-on-demand delivery button to make your workday go by ten times faster.
If you’re thinking about making the move across the pond for your first job, you’ll want to check out the newest office building by a real estate developer in London who’s planning on installing champagne-on-demand buttons on employees’ desks. Just press the button, and a dumbwaiter will bring up freshly-poured glasses of bubbly from the restaurant on the first floor of the office building. If this doesn’t qualify as an office perk, I’m not sure what does.
Sure, some offices allow casual Fridays or have ping pong tables or even let you bring your dog to work. But now, now you have an entirely new standard to judge all future employers by. Not supplying unlimited champagne for workplace mimosas? Sorry, looks like you’ll have to move onto the next candidate. Champagne is seriously having a moment right now, and if you’re not on board, you’re missing out. Workplaces, you’d better start stepping up your game, because now that I know personalized champagne delivery is an option, I’m not sure I’ll ever be willing to settle for less..
