Beyond stellar medical and salary benefits, the NFL offers its employees plenty of exclusive perks—from an onsite dry-cleaning service twice a week to employee discounts at the NFL shop, along with local restaurants and brand affiliates. The team looks forward to monthly company-wide events, ranging from bowling night to movie screenings to onsite food truck lunches. But the biggest perk of working at the NFL? Creating awesome experiences for over 200 million fans worldwide.
Die-hard fans themselves, it comes as no surprise that NFL employees are all driven by a love of the game. With that shared passion, “Back to Football”—a campaign that began as a fan initiative to celebrate the start of football season—has quickly become an NFL office tradition. Now, to kick off the season, NFL employees flaunt their favorite team gear in the office and hosting a pep rally filled with tailgating, games, and photobooth sessions.
Valuing Its Team
The NFL runs its business like a team, and valuable team players are recognized for their meaningful contributions—both on the field and in the office. Every spring, the League hosts an internal “Commissioner’s Awards” during draft season to recognize exceptional employee contributions. Colleagues nominate and vote for candidates—from newbies to Senior VPs—who receive awards for “Rookie of the Year,” “Unsung Hero,” “Innovation,” “Community Service,” and “The Commissioner's Award.”
Winning For Women
With more female employees working in the football industry than ever before, the NFL continues to make supporting women’s initiatives a priority. The League teamed up with the American Cancer Society to launch “A Crucial Catch” campaign, raising millions for breast cancer screenings with retail sales and auctions of specialty pink merchandise showcased in pro games.
