Microsoft gives free towels to staff

May 20th, 2006 by Patrick S

Microsoft has unveiled its secret weapon in the intensifying battle against Google: free towels for staff.

So the towels are back. And there will also be new services, such as dry cleaning and take-away meals designed by the chef Wolfgang Puck

The bonus scheme was based on a points system where the number of employees who can receive a top score is fixed, forcing managers to give a lower score to a worker even though they might have performed at the same level as a peer. It will be replaced with a “commitment rating” and larger numbers of free Microsoft shares.

This and all the soda you can drink…What a cool place to work.
