Chris Hemsworth rewards Administrative Assistant with massage

Chris Hemsworth rewards Administrative Assistant with massage

Actor Chris Hemsworth, best known for playing Norse God Thor, surprised a super-fan, and Administrative Assistant, yesterday to say thank you for all the hard work she has done.

The clip was aired on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which featured the Aussie sneaking up on the employee at work and giving her a massage to celebrate National Administrative Professionals Day in the United States.

DeGeneres explained why she decided to reward the worker: “Even though we work on the lot here, there are a lot of people who don’t get to meet celebrities. I invited him to help me surprise some people who work very, very hard all day.”

To the surprised staff member, she said: “He is going to take care of you today since you are so used to taking care of other people.”

The rest of the workforce subsequently celebrated with tequila and played limbo.

Reward is key to engagement, and it would be no surprise if the productivity of DeGeneres’ staff rose as a result of this.

However, some bosses decide to eschew experiential reward in favour of fiscal incentives. One such example of this is Hamdi Ulukaya, Founder and Chief Executive of US yoghurt maker Chobani, who could soon be making his staff millionaires. To find out why click here.
