Every business faces a decline in morale at some point. The sheer drudgery of the work, the defection of a popular coworker, supervisorial hitlers-all can cause a precipitous dive in the office happy factor.
In my situation, morale had reached a dangerously low level; one of the most popular employees had resigned. The standard platitudes and gold watch weren't enough, I felt. I wanted to give him something special.
