4 NM Perks to Make the Holidays Brighter

4 NM Perks To Make The Holidays Brighter (900 X 675 Px) (2)

While the holidays are exciting, they can also be taxing. Employees are wrapping up projects for the year. The days are getting shorter and colder. And – let’s face it – the to-do list feels longer than Santa’s. The holiday season can be overwhelming even for the best of us. It’s why Northwestern Mutual is intentional in offering perks that make the holiday season a little easier and a little cheerier. Check out a few ways we support our people this time of year:

Concierge Service

We could all use an extra set of hands from time-to-time, especially during the holiday season. Our in-house concierge service does just that. NM’s concierge service helps employees with a variety of holiday preparation needs, including researching the perfect presents, shipping holiday cards to loved ones, and of course,  wrapping presents. For employees who travel during the holidays, our concierge can even research flight deals and shop for items on employees’ packing lists.

Holiday Lunch

For Wisconsin-based employees, Northwestern Mutual has offered free lunch every day for nearly 100 years. During the holidays, our chefs prepare special meals in November and December filled with seasonal favorites, such as braised short ribs, stuffing and carrot souffles.   

What’s even better? Our restaurant shares recipes, so employees can take meal ideas directly from our chefs and recreate them for their own family gatherings. 

Floating Holidays

We know that not all employees celebrate the same holidays. We also understand that some dates, such as a birthday or anniversary, may hold special significance for an employee. That’s why all NM employees receive two floating holidays to celebrate the occasions and events that are most important to them.

Mental Wellness
The extra demands during this time of year can create stressors that put our emotional wellness to the test. To keep the winter blues at bay, we offer several mental and emotional health programs for our people, including partnerships with Talkspace and Life Matters. Hear directly from one of our advisory services consultants,   to learn more about how these services create a meaningful difference for our people.

At Northwestern Mutual, we strive to give our employees the tools and resources needed so they can live full and balanced lives during the holidays, and beyond. For more information on our employee perks, check out our Culture page.
