What managers should consider when deciding whether to release employees early from their weekly labors
Jacqui Hogan's insight:
In my experience, this works best as an occasion treat. Any more frequent, and people start to see it as part of their regular reward system, and it ceases to be a motivator.
Don't forget to give people a little notice though. Anyone with children (or other dependants) or after work commitments, may need to make alternative arrangements making this actually a disincentive for them.
