You may have already seen my introductory thread: http://www.theforumsa.co.za/forums/s...nter-the-Demon. I just joined the forum.
But getting straight to business
I'm an Engineer investigating optimising the HRM Practices of a few firms in SA. (I know...an engineer? In HR? Has Dilbert gone to the dark side??? )
I'm looking at companies that give their employees "extravagant incentives". Google comes to mind. My question: How does Google justify their benefits package? I mean how can they say it's not a complete waste of money? Yes, their staff is highly skilled and qualified and the company is booming but a lot of the benefits offered are in excess.
What are your thoughts?
