Many companies offer rewards to their best employees in order to motivate them to work harder. These incentives typically range in value and are mainly designed to make hard workers work harder while lackluster employees continue to do just enough to avoid getting fired.

For those who feel like hard work is not its own reward, a gift card for Starbucks isn’t going to change their work ethic. However a night with a porn star might get those stubborn employees to put in the extra effort. This is exactly what a Chinese company did when they arranged for their best employee to spend a night with a Japanese porn actress.

The Shanghai-based company invited the actress to a company dinner where her presence drew a lot of attention from reporters and her fans. It was then announced that the employee with the best annual performance would spend a night with the actress. Whoa!

When news of the sexy incentive hit the Internet, many bloggers and commenters slammed the company for their total lack of morals. There was no official response to these critics, but we don’t see why it would be a big deal. It’s not as if they forced the hardworking winner to have sex with the woman. He could have refused the offer or just stayed up all night playing video games. It’s his night, he earned it!

China is well known for having citizens who take pride in doing hard work. It’s common for large companies to offer huge cash bonuses and even cars to outstanding workers, so the idea of hiring a professional adult film actress to apply her craft is as a gift is not that farfetched.

This is obviously something that would never happen in the Philippines; at least not in such an official manner. You might read about an executive sending a prostitute to the hotel room of a valuable employee, but the company wouldn’t host a dinner and announce it publicly.

Given how fast China’s economy is growing in relation to ours, perhaps we should start.
