Big companies have the resources to offer glitzy benefits packages, which are often leveraged to attract and retain top candidates. Where does that leave small to medium-sized companies? It turns out that there are many great options that small to medium-sized companies fail to take advantage of. In this program, Cassie Whitlock, head of HR for BambooHR, and Lauren Fifield, head of benefits advising and operations at Gusto, discuss some potential benefits that smaller companies can offer in both traditional and voluntary packages -- including a wide range of low-budget perks. They also will dig deeper into how to build this package and communicate it to current and potential employees in a way that keeps you competitive and builds an attractive culture.

Prior to her current position, she was director of finance at Spark Networks and director of operations at Legacy Stamps.
