微軟福利不微

美國西雅圖(Seattle)這個城市,名字當然不夠紐約(New York)、華盛頓(Washington)這些耳熟能詳的旅遊熱點響,但其實不能忽視其經濟實力,因為有兩個全球響噹噹的企業在此茁壯成長,成為家傳戶曉的品牌。

第一個自然是創立於1971年的星巴克(Starbucks),令整個西雅圖彌漫一片咖啡香,不同品牌的咖啡店也紛出現。可惜,星巴克歷經多年擴張,也要面對調整的階段。

另一個更巨型企業,當然是大家電腦內的操作系統供應商微軟(Microsoft)也,創辦人蓋茨其實於美國新墨西哥州起家,直至1979年將公司遷來西雅圖後,才開展其黃金歲月。

做微軟員工的福利真的數之不盡,禤中怡的朋友剛從西雅圖回來,談到與在微軟打工的朋友相聚,才發現每名員工都能夠以優惠價購買公司的產品,有多優惠?例如買軟件的話,可以能夠用低至三折購買,當然並非過期產品,所以數百美元的最新產品,隨時可以低至20多美元,就能夠擁有,即約值200港元而已。不過,若果想買硬件的話,就會較令人失望,因為價錢並非太便宜。

朋友補充,話雖抵買,員工購物亦設上限,每人每年有約1,200美元(約9,360港元)限額,相信夠用吧!

除此之外,公司也會建立良好環境供人才享用,好像在飯堂設汽水機,讓員工免費任飲。這些福利未知是否屬美式企業的強項,聽聞彭博(Bloomberg)於本港的辦公室更有三文治等小食供應呢!至於會否因此而胖起來,抑或懂得運動健身,保持身形不走樣,就真的不得而知。

由於員工人數不少,當然也是商家的理想目標客戶群,朋友話,到西雅圖到餐廳用膳,分分鐘有著數,優惠更不止普通的送甜品或飲品那般簡單,只要展示員工證件,食晚餐可以買一送一,例如叫一個價值30美元的晚餐,可以免費獲等值較低的一份晚餐,而同枱能夠最多有兩名微軟員工享用該福利,但3個或以上同枱的話,就不可以繼續獲該優惠,或許為慳錢,索性大家分開坐不同枱,吃半價晚餐也不賴吧!

微軟本身還設有博物館,免費內進,可飽覽這間巨無霸企業的成長歷程,當中有些珍貴而值得紀念的展品,例如這張卡片(圖),看似平平無奇,但細心一望,查實是蓋茨的第一張名片也,認真夠特別。
