    One of the nation’s largest apartment complex managers (more than 62,000 units at 180 sites) has also been one of the most successful REITs (real estate investment trusts). When one of their investments paid off especially well, the firm shared with employees in the form of a “HaveFunD Bonus.” Every employee got a cut — with amounts based on tenure, averaging over $5,000 per employee. Even the three newest team members hired that week got $1,000. After the loot was delivered, two employees won all-expense-paid trips for themselves and a guest to the Super Bowl–for submitting their stories of how they spent their bonuses.
