How’s this for motivation? A beer cart rolls around on Friday, dispensing your favorite brew while you’re still at work and on the clock?
Advanced Medical in Port Orange, Fla., has had “Beer Cart Fridays” for two years and the company’s chief executive officer, Jennifer Fuicelli, plans to keep the free suds coming, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.
Fuicelli says it’s a way to show her 350 employees she appreciates their work. Advanced Medical is a provider of physical, occupational and speech therapists.
“We put our corporate culture before profits, and when you do that, profits will follow,” she told the News-Journal. She says she’s following the leads of Twitter and Yelp Inc., an online directory service. DPR Construction lets employees drink wine. MillerCoors employees are encouraged to test the company’s brews – after hours.
There are limits to the drinking at Advance Medical. Workers can have only one beer, and that’s only on Fridays, Fuicelli said.
The idea of allowing workers to drink on the job creates all kinds of issues and arguments. Do the risks outweigh the benefits?
