I just hired 10 people who are out of work since September.
They have no job skills that were relevant to what I am doing, so they do general office work, cleaning that sort of thing.
A little bit of extra boost so they and their families can have a merry Christmas and also some of them have shown potential in the IT field so I am going to help them enroll in school and get certificates and then so long as they do well, hire them full time on my staff.
I polled the staff and asked how they would like to use their bonus money and that is the idea they came up with, so I can't take credit for it.
So instead of getting the yearly bonus they are forgoing that to give 10 families a little holiday cheer. And they say the age of chivalry is dead eh?
