Unicom's Inglorious Award

This is like something from a bad movie … A branch of China Unicom Ltd. recently introduced what our Asia/Pacific contributing editor Robert Clark has described as "a staff motivational technique missing from the textbooks." The scheme? Force managers who missed their targets to wear a green vest bearing the word "b*stard." For the full story, including details of the other terms handed out to the worst performing managers, read Clark's blog. — Ray Le Maistre, Editor-in-Chief, Light Reading

re: Unicom's Inglorious Award True, but I bet they are calling out the top people as well to bring more shame on the underperforming b*stards.

re: Unicom's Inglorious Award Sarah,

You get to keep your job, since I think what you asked could be restated. What do I get for doing my job?

re: Unicom's Inglorious Award Dread to think what name goes on the t-shirt of the local representative of a network equipment vendor that's late with its new software release...
