Balancing work and family demands is always tricky for busy professionals – especially when a new baby is involved. Internet companies Yahoo! and Google offer their employees extended (and paid) maternity and paternity leave, and even provide small cash bonuses that can be used for child care, baby supplies and groceries. Social networking firm Facebook has similar family-leave policies and offers its workers up to $4,000 of “baby cash.”

Hiring in-demand technology professionals is only half the battle for employers. Retaining them for the long term is the other, and that can be an even more difficult challenge. To create a work environment that’s satisfying and enhances productivity – and to stand apart from competitors – many tech firms are offering creative incentives, along with generous compensation packages.
