    My hospital has been hemorrhaging staff left and right to become travellers, we don't have a contract with our anesthesiologists and are paying millions for travellers. PPE shortages, Supply chain delays, etc.

    My Hospital: "We're throwing a 1 day carnival for employees, Enjoy some fair food and rigged games"

    Travelers are our bread and butter up here. 100-120K to be a nurse in a beautiful state? Pretty easy sell.

    We don’t really do anything for morale, but I also get to work from home and no one bothers me so I can’t complain.

    We gave everyone $300 at the beginning of the year to spend on "health/wellness" items. A lot of golf clubs were purchased. Not a bad thing, just makes me laugh

    One of our former managers decided to schedule a virtual mozzarella making class as a holiday bonus.

    She is no longer with the company.

    This is the first year that I've hit the top of my pay scale. So when my review came up, I didn't get a raise but they gave me a cost of living adjustment bonus which they lumped in with my regular check and taxed the fuck out of that as well

    my prior employer cut bonuses and withheld raises last year then did nothing about losing employees (myself included) and the reward at the end of the year was a gift box with some snacks and a stainless steel wine tumbler in it

    funny enough it came on my last day and I got to keep it

    We just found out about it today. The guy I share an office with, Crazy Larry, is always bitching about what the hospital spends money on for shit like this. He's gonna lose his mind on Monday and I can't wait. I mean he gets all bent out of shape about our balloon budget (they hang up mylar balloons nearly every week celebrating RNs, lab workers, EVS, etc.)
