These services reduce stress, give time back, spark joy, and impact families! Not only do these benefits greatly impact employers’ ability to attract and keep the very best people, but Fringe also further solidifies a culture of well-being, appreciation, and diversity.

Unlike traditional benefits, Fringe benefits are personalized to the individual and self-selected by each employee. Employees who are struggling with financial stress can receive financial planning services while another employee who recently had a child can get organic baby food delivered to their door! An employer simply selects the employees they’d like to enroll and the amount, each month, that they’d like to allocate to each Fringe benefits account. From a 22-year old intern to a 62-year old leader, Fringe has something for everyone.”
