    This benefits provider isn’t afraid to allow employees to let loose now and again, hosting frequent events like birthday luncheons, holiday parties, and even costume contests. But the company is also keen to support its employees’ values. That’s why American Fidelity gives employees 20 hours of paid time off every year for community service. Employees also earn $10 an hour for their volunteer work, payable to their charity, for up to $1,000 a year. “There is a wonderful outpouring of support from our company to the community, and that is so important to me,” notes one employee.
