Unexpected Overtime Unexpected Rewards
One day Gary and his team were working late on a project that had
deliverables the next morning. Everyone was tired and it was well past office hours. People wanted to call it a day but everyone knew the team’s success was more important that their fatigue. Everyone wanted to see successful results so without hesitation they all made personal sacrifices to stay at the office without overtime pay. Gary, knew how hard his team was working and really wanted to do something special and unexpected for them. He wanted to do something kind. He printed the menu from the local steakhouse and passed them to each member of his team. He called in their orders and then went and picked up dinner for each person. Not only were they not expecting Gary to be so kind to buy everyone dinner they were beyond grateful that he sprung for steak. Gary also felt that his team was very kind to stay, work hard, work late, and give it their all without complaint. Everyone seemed to be so kind.
