According to the China Times, a real estate company that did not disclose its name in the southern city of Guangzhou is asking its employees to walk at least 180,000 steps a month. There are no rewards for achieving this goal, but if employees fail to reach the target, they are subject to a penalty of 0.01 yuan for each missing step.
Although the monthly task is to reach 180,000 steps, it means walking 6000 steps per day, a big problem although it does not seem so.
Staff complained about this strict system of walking, considering that it affected their daily lives and the number of hours they slept, especially as the employee spent most of his time sitting behind his office and had to work during the evening hours as well.
Some employees began using phishing devices to trick phones into recording the number of steps, but they are still not enough to meet the company's goal of reaching 180,000 steps per month, and they can not be used during sleep because that will raise many uncertainties.
The company has been hit by a sharp wave of criticism, especially on Chinese social media, wrote a user of the site Weibo Chinese: This company is looking for a reason only to deduct money.
