(Page 5 of 8) BULLHORN, THE MAKER of staffing software, gives new parents an unusual bonus: $500 for takeout meals in the first month after a child is born.
The Boston firm launched the program this summer to address the needs of its rapidly evolving workforce. Many of the once-single employees Bullhorn hired when the company was a start-up have begun families. Because new parents have enough to worry about, Bullhorn provides them with a $500 gift card to Dining In, Takeout Taxi, or GrubHub, company spokeswoman Alison Kenney said.
"That first month can be harrowing and tiring," Kenney said. "The last thing moms or dads want to do is put together a square meal after a long day."
