Yeah I don't think doing illegal favors in the work place is ever a good idea. ;)

@Gigi good question indeed. Why.

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

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?

@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.
