Hiring good employees is tough. So we try to sweeten the pot a bit. Last fall we offered $1,000 worth of books to anyone who could find us a good employee. Luke, genius that he is, “found” himself.
Voila Luke, holding his gift cards to Porter Square Books in Cambridge, MA. Ironically, by the time we got to cashing in his prize, Luke had moved on (a new company and a new state! Now he’s conveniently located near to the fantastic Porter Square Books and, of course, me.)
The bookstore wasn’t quite sure how to handle our request for a $1,000 gift card. Apparently they’d never done that before, and the system couldn’t handle it. So Luke wound up with five $200 gift cards. All the better for sharing.
