Successful Hire? You've Won A New Car!

Yet another indication of the tight labor market comes from consulting house PricewaterhouseCoopers. As part of its Ready to Roll new employee referral programs, which offer cash incentives to workers who recommend a job candidate that is subsequently hired, employees also become eligible for a sweepstakes-like grand prize. This year's winner will receive their choice of $30,000 in cash (before taxes) or of a tax-free 1999 Volkswagen Beetle. The winner is chosen at random from all those who made successful referrals. Other grand prizes PricewaterhouseCoopers has used in the past include a pair of mountain bikes, a Jet Ski, and a trip to the Tour de France cycling event in Paris.
