What is People Over Perks?

People Over Perks is a private Slack group for HR and People Operations professionals or C-Level Executives that oversee the People strategy in their companies. The aim is to create a vibrant community of like-minded professionals who are willing to share best practices and their knowledge on how to build, align, and enable high-performing teams. All members of the People Over Perks community are expected to adhere to the Community’s Code of Conduct.

What is the initiative’s core philosophy?

Sure — it’s nice to have perks at work. Yet, we believe that a company should invest in its people above all. At Leapsome, we’re driven by helping companies create exceptional cultures where employees are aligned behind the mission and values and receive the right mix of training and feedback to develop. While ping pong tables and nap pods are a "nice to have," providing an environment where everyone can be successful and fulfilled at work is a "need to have."
