Entercom distributed a press release Monday that detailed new benefits that employees of the company will start receiving in 2016. Each employee will get a half-day off each quarter when they volunteer for a non-profit organization of their choosing. Every employee will be able to purchase Entercom stock at a 15% discount through a payroll deduction plan. And each employee that has a student loan, and has graduated within the past eight years, will receive $1,000 per calendar year to pay down that loan. Here’s what CEO Davide Field said about the new benefits.
Field said, “Making Entercom a great place to work has long been a core principle at Entercom. We are always looking for ways to improve ourselves and make Entercom a better and stronger organization, and that includes enhancing the quality of life for our team. We have examined benefits programs from leading companies all across the country in a wide range of industries and have honed in on a few highly compelling programs that we think will make outstanding additions to life at Entercom. We are very excited to be delivering these new benefits to our people.”
