THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: CEO Neil Capel Talks Startup Employee Perks
Startup employees enjoy some serious perks ranging from nerf gun wars, catered lunches, in-house espresso machines and all the greek yogurt you can eat. But what about a special vacation for high performing employees to a remote Caribbean island owned by Sir Richard Branson?
Enter Necker Island, a getaway location under review for the next possible startup perk for 20 or 30 of AOL Ventures & Bowery Capital’s 1,100 employees. Sailthru’s CEO Neil Capel – part of AOL Ventures’ portfolio companies – weighs in on the Wall Street Journal article, “Bowery Capital, AOL Ventures Plan New Reward For Top Startup Workers: Luxury Weekends.”
When Neil was asked how he will choose the coveted nominations out of the Sailthru employees, he remarked, “That is the question.”
May the odds be with you, Sailthru employees.
