Employees of a fitness centre in Guangzhou have been made to undergo a range of unusual punishments, according to mainland TV channel Feng Yun Hui.
In a viral video, the workers were seen pole dancing, parading in the streets in their underwear, and kissing fellow co-workers after failing to meet their sales quota.
The fitness centre reportedly adopts “military-style techniques”, requiring employees to set their own targets and punishments.
Feng Yun Hui reported that, every time punishments were formulated, there would be a lot of excitement with employees themselves chipping in with ideas.
“They chose all the punishments themselves,” said Ma, manager at the fitness centre. “We never ‘force’ them to do anything.”
