Employee benefits have been taken to a whole new level by one Norwegian IT company:
Aftenposten – An IT company in Nordjylland, Denmark has introduced a novel program to keep employees satisfied. After examining well-known trends in Internet and business traffic, LL Media decided it would be sensible and appreciated to offer all of its employees free subscriptions to Internet pornography.
The company’s director, Levi Nielsen, believes that access to porn is a natural fringe benefit, like a free phone or a company car.
“We know that 80 percent of all hits on the Internet are on porn sites. And we can see that people also surf porn pages during work,” Nielsen told Danish Broadcasting’s DR Nordjylland.
In return for this service the company blocks all access to porn pages during office hours.
Nielsen hopes that the expense of about DKK 30 (USD 5) per head per week will make his staff more relaxed and more efficient on the job.Bjorn, are you going home to “relax” again during lunch hour?
