    5. Casual Clothing

    Keeping it casual in office will have your Millennials feeling comfortable and at home.  Most major companies have already done away with the traditional suits and have implemented T-Shirts and Jeans.

    6. Holiday Decorations

    It’s wonderful to get into the Holiday spirit with your coworkers! Having an office that gathers together to make a winter wonderland really boosts morale! Getting spooky for Halloween, patriotic for 4th of July, and festive for Mardi Gras allows for everyone to get in the spirit to celebrate. Decorating brings out another side of teamwork in our office at Bookkeeper360. We learn our strengths and weaknesses as we waltz around the office decorating.

    Have you ever wanted a family dinner without actually having to deal with family? Stop on by at Bookkeeper360 because we always have a “family” lunch or breakfast on Friday’s! It’s a great addition to our staff meeting and allows for us to build a one-of-a-kind dynamic. Every Friday we order from a pizzeria on Long Island called Monaco’s Brick Oven Pizzeria and Restaurant.

    Nothing celebrates the end of tax season more than a company outing! Whether it’s a visit to Long Island’s finest wineries or out to eat at our favorite Mexican restaurant, Bookkeeper360 cherishes their employees by showing they care about our hard work and dedication. Nothing is better than positive reinforcement for Millennials.

    9. Tech Savvy Environment

    Who wouldn’t love being able to work on the go? Millennials have the added benefit of being extremely tech savvy. Even if we have to step outside for a few moments, our smartphones allow us to pick and go without ever skipping a beat. Working with Bookkeeper360has allowed us never to worry about computer malfunctions because we can always pick up where we left off with a flick of a finger. At Bookkeeper360 all employees are issued a Mac Mini which is the perfect piece of hardware to do this!


    10. Unlimited coffee and espresso

    Here at Bookkeeper360 we are huge fans of Nespresso!  Not only do we have an office Nespresso machine but we have two other coffee machines. We practically run on caffeine! This could be the reason why we have such a hands on and productive team of dedicated Accountants and Bookkeepers!
