Many of you have been witness to the changes that are still ongoing this week around jobs managed through the various corporations employment terminals. We're not quite done yet, but we should be soon. :)
As the article in the Globe covered, the employment terminals have received a software upgrade and the corporations have standardized their job systems to a global system that lets them provide their employees with better benefits than ever before! We've streamlined the number of jobs on the terminals by building tiers or ranks into every job's position. No more will you need to be fired and re-hired into your new position just because you've been doing good work and earned a promotion.
As part of this process, many of your characters have experienced a change in job title, a clarification of job duties and possibly an adjust to your weekly salary. If you haven't already stopped by your employment terminal for the week, you might want to check in (your character having seen the news on the feed of course).
We hope everyone finds their new titles (and the documented duties). We realize that for some of you, you can't literally do some of the things your duties might say. Thats OK, some of these duties are forward thinking.
Now, about the perks. Things that were formerly reimbursed for, that now exist as a perk, will no longer be reimbursed for. Instead, the right job positions should have appropriate perks to support them. These perks will not be equally or fairly distributed. Some of you will have more than others. Some of you might not have any perks with your job. Some of you don't get any of this upgrade because you're paid via a character interaction (and aren't some cog in a machine?).
Here's the list of Perks: (why can I share this? because they are ICly being touted by the companies recruiters ... soon)
SIC Fee Waiver
High Risk Clone Insurance
Uphoria Spa Pass
Firearm Permit Discount
Taxi Travel Club
Luxury Limo Pass
Stay Fresh Pass
We're kicking around a few other perk ideas like discounts at specific stores or free lunch.
Oh, an if you have access to your employment terminals management menu, you can promote and demote employees and add new positions based on the new system.
