The Many or the Few?
My work had been giving out $10 gift cards on a monthly basis, for successfully tracking billable time, on time, as we migrated over to a new system. Nine months ago, they removed this incentive system, and replaced it with a winner-take all $1000 grand prize at the end of the year, with a smaller 2nd and 3rd prize.
Shortly before the drawing, I suggested that whoever wanted to, could go in together as a group, and if any of us won, we would split the money evenly.
I had no takers.
After the drawing, three people left happy. I was not one of them.
I would have been happy with my gift card and think this was a poor business decision.
1) Do you agree? 2) Would you have gone in with me?
