This viral office employee is fighting over bonuses held at the table

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – A company in China created a new tradition of giving its employees bonuses in a unique way. Instead of giving bonuses in envelopes or via account transfers, companies create games that require employees to fight for cash on the table. The rules are simple, employees can bring as much money as they can count accurately.

Quoting the report South China Morning Postthis new tradition was held at a party held by the Kuangshan crane company in Henan Province, central China ahead of the Chinese New Year on February 5.

On a 50 meter long table in the middle of the venue, 100 yuan banknotes or around Rp. 215,000 (assuming an exchange rate of Rp. 2,176/yuan) were placed. Employees will be instructed to take as much as they can and count how much cash they hold.

According to local Chinese media, Star Video, employees can take home all the money they have counted in certain time slots ranging between 1, 3, 5, 10, and 15 minutes, which are determined through a lottery.

This game also has a rule that participants will lose 1,000 yuan for each incorrectly counted banknote.

All 5,000 company employees are invited to participate in this game. The overall bonus prepared by the company reached 100 million yuan or around Rp. 217 billion.

An employee managed to win the “jackpot” by pocketing 97,800 yuan or around Rp. 200 million.

Because of this unique bonus distribution tradition, many netizens are interested in applying to work at Kuangshan.

Cui Peijun, the company's boss, was even given the title of “China's most royal boss.”

Although China's labor law does not require companies to provide year-end bonuses, 74% of companies did so in 2022, according to a survey conducted by CIIC Management Consulting Company.
