Quirky perks
In these days of customized compensation packages, candidates can get very creative with the perks and benefits they want. Take that old corporate culture: to some job candidates, it's a real deal maker. So if you've got a good one, flaunt it.

Walking the talk. A new manager at DeMarini Sports, in Hillsboro, Oreg., would find ample opportunity to flex his or her muscle. There's a gym, indoor go-cart racing, a batting cage, a basketball court, and a ping-pong room. Adams Golf provides free balls for use on the company's golf range.

Protecting their assets. All employees get a custom-fitted chair at the headquarters of the Healthy Back Store, in Lorton, Va. The chair of choice: the Aeron Chair by Herman Miller.

Field of dreams. Executive-style perks are trickling down to field managers. San Francisco-based Jamba Juice has what is called "The Juice Plan." Each store manager receives a quarterly bonus, and, at the end of the third year, a retention bonus and three weeks of paid time off toward a sabbatical of up to two months.
