Default What Makes you Stay at your Job

The place I work is in the process of setting up an employee incentive program to raise the moral and give us something to look foreward to if we perform well.

Upper management passed out a survey asking us what we feel would be some good prizes / incentives. Anything is possible...

What does your employeer do for incentives, anything lame, anything worth typing about?

I've heard of people going on trips and things because they meet their numbers... does this happen often or is it just all talk... discuss Click the image to open in full size.

Money - my whole company gets a $200 bonus each month if we hit our sales goal

Gas cards - the sales team gets a gas card for every pallet of refrigerant or antifreeze we sell

we sell ACDelco, GM Accessories, and aftermarket A/C. the gas card is the incentive going on now.

a lot of times it's like $25 gift certificate to Best Buy, Publix or Home Depot for every set of 20" wheels sold, or for each DVD unit sold, it just depends on the month.

We don't have incentives exactly, we have contests. Mostly put on by the vendors whos products we sell. I've gotten so much free **** it's ridiculous. Most recently I got a Tumi suitcase. It definitely helps. Gas cards aren't a bad idea though.

Since we've changed GM's - **** around here is getting cheaper n cheaper by the ******* months. I don't remember the last time we had a luncheon or even a freaking bingo game anymore. (bingo game winner gets gas cards)

This new **** is just straight up into yelling at ppl for fun when he feels like it with no logic/reason behind his screaming.

WE USE TO have company luncheons every 3 months - with that came employee of the month, department of the months & raffles. All those came with bonus $$. Turkeys for thanksgiving & xmas drives to raise presents to foster kids. Annual company picnic lots of food games n prizes n we rented out a park. Vacation tickets n trips that ppl would win.

Yea use to. Click the image to open in full size.

Because on top of your salary, your are also receiving stock in that company. Provided people pull for the good of the company, the stock goes up. When you retire the company "buys back" the stock and you have a nice chunk of $ to live off of.

That's the oversimplified version of it anyway.

Well, the bad news is Enron.

The good news is the other 11,000+ US companies that are actually run the way they are supposed to be.

what percentage of companies not only go bankrupt but fire you? I would bet it's probably half of one percent...if it's even that much.

edit: working for a company and investing in it is nothing different than working for a company and investing in a different company. you should diversify anyways, esop is just an added incentive.

the company only needs to dissolve and you don't have a job nor the stock investment.
