15 minutes to drink tea does seem a bit chinzy as a gesture of appreciation, especially when the memo underlines the fact that it shouldn't cost the employer anything. As you say, a little common sense goes a long way when it comes to rewards. An extra break is a nice thought but the ungracious wording ruins it.

This would be funny if it weren't a true story.

It doesn't seem like that was a well thought out plan. Appeared to stray away from recognition in lieu of trying to score some positive PR for the organization. If you focus on effective recognition, the PR will take care of itself

Great post. I still tell people a story from my past. I worked at a company where a team of 10 worked a 96 hours SHIFT. There reward? everyone got a clock radio from the CEO!

At the time it was both disappointing and hilarious. Now it's just funny. Needless to say, none of those people were ever again inspired to work so hard for a client.
