I wonder how productive employees would be if we had some type of harsh punishments.. I am not condoning this behavior, but.. would we work harder? Why would anyone continue to be employed there? What are they getting paid?
A video from China shows employees of a company being punished for not meeting sales targets. They're beaten with a belt, and forced to drink urine.
It starts with a male worker in the middle of a room being beaten by a woman with a belt. It cuts to a different guy getting the same treatment, this time by a man. Then you see other employees holding their noses as they drink cups of urine.
The video went viral and three of the company managers were jailed. According to AsiaOne.com, there was another video that's since been taken down, and it was even worse.
A topless man was beaten with a belt, and there were text messages of managers threatening to make the employees eat cockroaches, drink vinegar and toilet water, and having their heads shaved.
