Best Company Perk Ever — ‘Beer Cart Fridays’
Okay, weâre just going to say it: Advance Medical is the coolest company in the world.
The Port Orange, FL-based healthcare company has instituted a gimmick in its office called âBeer Cart Fridays.âÂ and it’s every bit as awesome as it sounds.
In order to thank everyone for their hard work, CEO Jennifer Fuicelli (from the Italian root meaning âgreatest boss ever) says she lets her employees drink beer from a cart thatâs wheeled around the office. Itâs all part of what she dubs an âunorthodox corporate culture.â Not to mention a ploy to get people to make bad jokes that begin, “Maybe it’s just the beer talking, but…”
Fuicelli said, “We put our corporate culture before profits, and when you do that, profits will follow.â Whatever. Just point us to the beer.
âBeer Cart Fridays,â which has been around for two years, does have a downside. Employees can only enjoy one drink, and thereâs no word on what kind of beer is being served. Of course if itâs free, who cares? If thereâs one thing we learned in college, itâs that the best beer is free beer. It’s amazing what you remember after spending six years as an undergrad.
The complimentary beer on company time is part of Advanced Medicalâs philosophy of showing employees how much theyâre appreciated. Theyâre encouraged to dress up on Halloween and enjoy barbecues during work hours. Heck, theyâre even given a paid day off on their birthday. About the only perk missing is âRoller Coaster Thursdaysâ and we wonât be surprised when that becomes a thing.
