Chinese tech companies hire 'pretty' women to motivate male employees
Chinese internet companies have been hiring 'pretty' women, known as 'programming cheerleaders' to inspire male employees. They buy them breakfast, chat to them and play games like ping-pong (inset).
The women undergo training and apparently have 'greatly improved' the employees' 'job efficiency and motivation.' The companies who have adopted the role are not yet known. The role has divided social media users, with many thinking it is a sexist and stereotypical move.
