Could you mention a company that is covering all these ten incentives?

Hey Lyceum, thanks for the question. While it's hard to give an example of a business that's doing exactly those ten incentives verbatim, I'll use our own company, Palo Alto Software (PAS), as an example.

Items #1 and #2 are integral to our company culture, and #3, while not used often, is certainly a tool our managers/supervisors are able to use if needed.

Items #4, #6, and #7 are hard to quantitatively measure, but our executive team does a good job of implementing them in their respective departments.

For item #5, PAS offers incentives related to maintaining physical health, through discounted gym memberships, and team involvement in community sports leagues.

#8 is a fairly easy one to implement, and we have coffee carafes and boxes of tea in our kitchen that are for employee use/enjoyment.

#9 and #10 are tackled by an internal committee that plans regular events to encourage our employees to have fun together, or participate in activities outside of the office. Here's a good recap with more examples: http://www.liveplan.com/blog/2014/08/work-hard-play-hard/

We also have our culture deck on SlideShare if you're interested in taking a look at it: http://www.slideshare.net/Bplans/14-0619-culture-deck-2
