Bottom line...no more office treats. Since it is a small office tallying isn't necessary, since he NEVER has brought in a single thing and it is painfully obvious to the other 3 people there. And I am above him in the office hierarchy and in a position to make office policy. He doesn't perform any of my office duties, but I do have a direct influence on his raises and bonus'. THE END.
That rates up there as one of the most unprofessional things I have seen.
Raises and bonuses dependant on bringing in treats and doing things out side of his job description? When I believe you previously stated that he performs his job well?
A workplace shouldn't be high school. Nor should it be a popularity contest. If I were him, and I caught I whiff of what you think you can do, I'd be straight on the phone to an employment lawyer.
And as for how much money he does or doesn't have, it is absolutely none of your business what he chooses to do with the money he has earned. For all you know he could be donating it all to a charity. Or saving to pay cash for a house. How dare you?
I absolutely agree with what pharmagal said. Every word.
OP, I'm going to be brutally honest here- this is one of the pettiest threads I have ever seen. You seem to be carrying an inordinate amount of anger towards your co-worker for not doing a completely voluntary action. Would it be nice if he occasionally brought in treats to the office? Sure. But he is under absolutely no obligation to do so. Bringing in goodies is a voluntary
action. Nobody has
to do it. It's a nice thing to do, and it would be nice if your co-worker reciprocated, but this is not something that is required or essential. It really doesn't matter why
he doesn't do it. The fact is, he doesn't have to, for whatever reason he choose not to, and penalizing him for not doing something that is totally voluntary and not at all related to his work duties is petty, vindictive, and just plain wrong.
And as other posters have said- his financial affairs are none of your business. None
. Frankly, if this is the kind of pettiness, scrutiny, and grubby score-keeping that goes on in your office, I cannot say it is a place I would care to work. Middle and high school were bad enough the first time around, thanks.
