|My point was simply to make the person feel appreciated with something they really wanted.....not a few chocolate covered peanuts! |
I dont think that they advertise their jobs like
Google is looking for bright and PHD's certified brains to work for their Manatthan office.
Salary: free M&M's supply for as long as you work for us
nor like this
Salary: free car for each employee
This kind of gifts (cars) must be perceived as some kind of bonuses for target achieved or something like that and the M&M's just to makes everybody feel good and part of the Google familly.
If you advertise jobs with the one with free car prospect, you might have some problem: a lot of people who will only come for the car and once they've got it, ditch the company to go work for one where the 'corporate identity' is percieved as good and a better working place
if later you want to remove this advantage (receiving a car when you sign your employment contract) it's going to be MUCH harder than if you want to stop the M&M's supply ;)
