My company doesn't even give us a Christmas card at Christmas.

It will come out of their pay for that week.

Feel bad for the guy that called out sick.

That's pretty cool.  My company gives us $1 for every year we've been in business, too.

Too bad we started in 2009.

They will see it on their earnings statement.  It will be like $130.00.  $30 to the government, $100 in the employees pocket.  Unless of course that it is a really cool company and they chose not to deduct it as salary.

I think I'll forward this to my employer and see if he has a stroke.

The company I work for give out $100 WalMart gift cards every year to the 400 or so employees.

Someone please shoot the guy who made the font for that headline.  WTF was that??A?
 
2013-04-11 02:29:49 PM
This is a great find, less than 100 employees, this company is on the right track
 
2013-04-11 02:30:52 PM
Happy employees are productive employees. The company will get that back what they spent many, many times over. Good buisness all around.
 
2013-04-11 02:31:34 PM
Don't worry I'm the top 2 or 3 employees make 300% of what the rest of the workforce makes combined...

"Because they are so important"
 
2013-04-11 02:32:26 PM
I guess it will have to really depend on the atmosphere at the company.

Might be one of the fun things the quirky boss does.
Might be a really lousy culture and this is too little too late.


/dnrta. How did you guess?
 
2013-04-11 02:32:31 PM
Wait, sorry, forgot:

This is what happens when 0bongo's socialist muslim philosphy permeates the job creator's mentality. Now that company will never make a profit, and furthermore. those employees should consider themselves lucky they're paid at all. Minimum wage is too high and Sarah Palin.
 
2013-04-11 02:33:14 PM
What about all the former employees that helped them make it to 100 yrs?  >:-|
 
2013-04-11 02:33:17 PM
My company has been rewarding us with no raises. For four straight years.

So, yeah, I'm farking around on the clock a lot now.
 
2013-04-11 02:46:57 PM
Worked for a company that would do that every now and then.  Was a great place until we got a new VP and he decided to make into 'corporate drone' world where everything is a blame game.  Sad times indeed.

I can't be the only one who feels this way - but I really don't like the small gestures companies make for their employees.  Raise/bonus/promotion - I get those.  But I've gotten fluff crap like thank you notes, or a 10 dollar blockbuster card.  One company did $100 on your one year anniversary, and 200 on your two year, etc, etc...

For some reason, it seems really insulting to me.  'Hey Fark_Guy_Rob - thanks for all that extra work you did last week.  Here is a gift card to Blockbuster!  Don't say I never got ya nothin....'

Team dinners, fancy Christmas parties and summer outings all make me roll my eyes.  It reminds me of my parents giving me a sticker for being such a 'big helper' in the Kitchen.

Rereading that thread makes me thankful we no longer live in such economically depressed times.

Ohhhh, a hundred-dollar bill as in a hundred-dollar bank note, not a bill (invoice) for one hundred dollars. (That's how I interpreted the headline and I couldn't understand why subby would think it was cool.)

Queue the inevitable outrage article when all of these people owe an extra $30 in taxes when the IRS treats it as a taxable benefit.

Wow. 100 years of continually doing business, making a profit, AND treating the staff/workers right.

Back in the stone age, I used to work in a family owned restaurant. The owner would routinely show up and work alongside us. Need dishes? Done. Need something prepped? Done. Whatever you need- done. He had no qualms telling you when you farked something up. He also had a habit of coming in the day after a shiatty holiday, like Mother's Day, and personally thanking each employee by name, with a handshake. He'd conveniently slip you a $50 when he did this. No one liked getting chewed out by him, but we always appreciated knowing he wouldn't mince words. He died long after I left; I wouldn't want to work that job again, but to this day he was still the best boss I've ever had.
