Some companies let co-workers choose raises, bonuses

(KFVS) -

The programs run differently when it comes to the details, but they usually work like this:

Bosses give employees "stock futures" and the employees can give them all to one co-worker or distribute them as they see fit.

But some managers swear by the practice.
