What makes you happy at work?

Is it a sense of belonging? Of ownership? Of purpose?

Well, yeah, that and kick-ass perks.

From guided oms and craft beer kegerators to on-site massages and office-cleaning wizards, here are 12 Chicago services that deliver just that.

On Happier Happy Hours …
It’s 5 p.m. Do you know where your office bartender is? Brand new to Chicago, Crafty delivers, installs and maintains fresh kegerators to the office with no upfront costs. They can also help you build and staff a monthly happy hour. Alternatively, Cocktail Courier delivers complete cocktail kits — i.e., quality spirits with all the fixings — from the city’s finest mixologists straight to your office.

On Free Lunch …
There is such a thing. Your office concierge for “family” meals: Fooda. They work with restaurants from all over the city to deliver food to offices on the daily.

On Day-to-Day Wellness …
So obvious is the connection between mindfulness and productivity that wellness should be your top priority. That’s Bottom Line Yoga in a nutshell. The downtown studio offers in-office programming that’ll help you hit the refresh button. You’ll also want to hit up Soothe for on-demand masseuses who come to you. Hangover cures from the IV Doc every once and a Monday wouldn’t hurt, either.

On Spring Cleaning …
Working in a clean, uncluttered environment is important. Hand over that responsibility to Office Luv, the new tech-savvy cleaning service who make sure your space is squeaky clean and your office is never without the essentials. To ensure everyone appears their best, Shoe Drop handles in-office shoe shines and shoe repairs, while Manicube offers haircuts for gents.

On Personal Assistants ….
Outsourcing. It works. It helps. Especially for pesky errands. Need anything and everything delivered? Favor. Or Postmates. Then there’s TaskRabbit, the on-demand helping hand that’ll take care of basically everything else.
