One could easily replace "system of annual performance reviews" with "annual raises" and this would be the State organization for which I work. We haven't had a raise in years and I've actually made less money in the last two years. But I have lovely "Excellence Award" printed in calligraphy by an actual computer on really nice thick paper. It currently resides somewhere in my file cabinet. Probably under "G" for garbage...
How about, "Employees can win badges..." etc., or
"have their photographs taken with the President or Prime Minister".
I write this, because one of the prized displays in the sitting room of one of my former bosses was a photograph of him explaining his inventions to a former Prime Minister.
