IT firms are hiring cheerleaders to boost productivity in China

Internet companies across China are hiring ‘programming cheerleaders’ to help create a fun work environment and to boost job productivity.

The job of these programming cheerleaders is to buy programmers breakfast, ‘chitchat’ and play ping pong with them during their downtime at the office.

According to the HR manager of an Internet company in China, these cheerleaders have been brought on because the majority of their workforce is male and they suck at socializing. Having these cheerleaders at the office has apparently increased job efficiency and motivation.

Strange but true!
