Re: Free Pizza
@Gigi good question indeed. Why.

I think we are living in materialistic world where own benifits have precedence over others.

I am not advocating this but this is what is happening sadly.

Re: Free Pizza
"These s called official lunches do have some inside buiness as well. I worked for a firm where it was routine to take any delegation comming for visit to be taken to best hotel around with some party time as well. Much of the time the remedy works is we got the deals. So I think its a good stunt to have buisness."

Nomii, without that intention why they have to offer free lunch/dinner for us?

Re: Free Pizza
@Gigi I agree with you. These s called official lunches do have some inside buiness as well. I worked for a firm where it was routine to take any delegation comming for visit to be taken to best hotel around with some party time as well. Much of the time the remedy works is we got the deals. So I think its a good stunt to have buisness.

Re: Free Pizza
@Batye I agree with your actions to keep employees motivated but I think these rewards are just icing on the cake, emplyees need complete cake first to be true which includes basic necessaties of life fullfilled. I believe that these rewards will defintely work for a person free of worries rather than those trying to make both ends meet.

Being the same...or not
Being like other people might work on an internet pizza giveaway but it might just backfire at the office. Especially if you suddenly try to become their buddy, understanding their problems that you really don't understand or even just don't have. It can come off as false, so be careful.

I've known managers that even think they are like everyone else they work with, except their whole team knows the manager's lifestyle is vastly different from their own, no kids, no mortage, takes exotic vacations while everyone else is struggling to pay the bills and juggle summer vacation day care and if they are lucky get to go somewhere to meet the folks that's not their hometown. It's simply harder to pull of the 'everyman' aspect when you're not.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
