  • Extensive educational opportunities, including in-house and outside sources such as seminars and conferences as well as a program that underwrites the cost of graduate or undergraduate courses (even those that are not directly job related)

  • Longevity awards (specifically, a company-sponsored vacation after each five years of employment)

  • A wellness program ("WellGUARD") that provides employees free access to tools and resources aimed at promoting long-term personal, physical, and financial health, rewarding successful participants with decreased healthcare costs or monetary awards

  • Paid memberships in professional organizations

  • A family friendly environment and flexibility in modifying the structure of jobs to meet special requirements (including "flex time," telecommuting, etc.)

  • A variety of recognition programs that highlight both group and individual accomplishments

  • Job postings for available positions and a practice of promoting from within as well as bonuses for employee referrals

  • A business casual dress code . . . and an on-line company store for the purchase of reasonably priced Berkshire Hathaway GUARD items (sold at cost)
