Many companies are using incentives to attract workers.

LinkedIn says the most common incentives are focusing on more flexibility and better work-life balance. For example, four-day workweeks.

Other companies who need employees back in the office are looking at what else they can offer.

Education help is also becoming something more companies are considering.

Waste Management just became the first to offer free college education for its employees along with their spouses and kids.

"This is totally debt-free for the employee and they don't have to pay anything upfront. So, we are meeting them at their needs," said Tamla Oates-Forney, with Waste Management.

The company has been dealing with a supply and demand issue with drivers and technicians.
