There you have it, a round up of the top benefits on offer in the Gaming Industry, what was also interesting about researching this topic is that whilst a lot of companies did a great job of highlighting their company benefits and promoting their company culture, there was still a lot of employers that could improve on this and were doing little to promote their business USP’s / employer brand. 

In an industry where competition for talent is high, its important that companies are doing everything they can to promote themselves as an attractive employer.
