    34 Bizarre Company Perks: Employers Offer Everything But Raises

    For some reason, employers seem to have this idea that the way to reward employees is not with upward mobility, better benefits, or higher pay, but instead with meaningless incentives employees don’t actually want.
    Here are 34 ludicrous incentives employers have offered instead of increased wages.
    This company provided their employees with an additional 10-minute break as a token of appreciation for their excellent performance. However, to avail of this reward, employees were required to request the 10 minutes in advance and were not allowed to accumulate it with their existing breaks.
    "You won an extra 10 min break!"
    This workplace rewarded its employees with a single mint for their remarkable achievement in generating an additional $6 million in sales.
    "For your.... EncourageMint"
    This company provided its excellent employees with stylish and fashion-forward ‘work bux’. These work bux, adorned with cringey bitmojis, could be redeemed for trendy items like top ramen and granola bars.

    And this job offered chic and fashion-forward rewards in the form of Monopoly money that could be redeemed at the company’s exclusive boutique filled with an array of luxury merchandise. However, the items in the store were deemed to be luxuriously pricey by the original poster, who lamented, ‘Despite having close to 400 Bux in the picture, I could only afford complimentary snacks.’

    This boss gave their employee a singular banana to celebrate their first year at the company.

    Here’s the huge reward (sarcasm) that ER workers got for their worst month since COVID times. Because hot dogs are a great reward for literally saving lives every day.

    Instead of giving out raises, this employer distributed cups filled with 100 Grand Bars to their employees. The cups had a tongue-in-cheek note attached to them, adding a playful touch to the gesture. This stylish and fashion-forward approach to employee appreciation shows a unique and creative way to reward and motivate employees.
    "I know you wanted money... you'll just have to settle for 100 grand!"
    This employer presented its employees with a chic and fashion-forward appreciation gift – a literal rock.

    I thought I couldn’t top the last one, but I’m pretty sure this is the worst employee appreciation gift of all time…
    "I know this bag looks empty, but it's actually filled with our love"
    On Employee Appreciation Day, this stylish boss set the bar high by promising drumsticks. However, instead of the typical chicken variety, they surprised everyone with a fashionable and forward-thinking twist. The boss brought in drumstick-shaped purses as a unique and trendy gift. The team was thrilled and impressed by the chic and fashion-forward gesture, which perfectly embodied the boss‘s innovative and creative leadership style.

    And this employer showed how much they appreciated their employees with an orange (that I’m pretty sure might actually be a clementine) and a bad pun.
    "ORANGE you the best!"
